Indonesia in Revolt - Democracy or Death!

This film was made in Indonesia and Australia between August 1998 and March 1999 in cooperation with activists from the Indonesian political underground.

It tells the story of the 1998 explosion of the Indonesian student movement and its successful struggle to get rid of the dictator Suharto. It also shows how the struggle for full democracy, social justice and freedom in Indonesia, is not yet over.

Apart from documenting the clashes with Suharto's military and the mobilisations of student, workers and others, the film also lets Indonesian activists speak for themselves to explain what they achieved and how, and what is still yet to come.

Workers, students, political leaders of the political underground, writers and journalists all speak of the struggle against Suharto and the unfolding struggle to end militarism and establish social justice.

Produced and directed by Jill Hickson
