Postcards from the Zoo
Indonesia, DEU, Hongkong, China 2012
90 min

The zoo—a place of yearning. The zoo animals are yearning for freedom and many of the visitors long for adventure and the call of the wild. It is in these surroundings, where imagining yourself into other worlds is easy, that Lana grows up. When she was a little girl, her father left her behind in the colorful Jakarta zoo to be raised by zoo keepers. What dreams and longings does a young woman have who has grown up among giraffes, elephants and hippos? is the cowboy who appears one day and is able to do magic merely a wish summoned into solid form, or is he real? As with Edwin’s internationally acclaimed directorial debut, THE BLIND PIG WHO WANTS TO FLY, the tone of his new work has the feel of being similarly suspended in a strange limbo. A film which surrenders itself to the sense of longing it conveys. (Berlinale)
