Across Indonesia, hundreds of rural communities are in conflict with corporations seeking control of their resources. When they push back, they face the wrath of the state. In our feature film, Our Mothers’ Land, journalist Febriana Firdaus travels to meet women who have risen to lead social movements, facing violence, imprisonment, and judgement from conservative societies as they fight for their rights.
The film premiered at the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival in 2020 and was recognised by multiple awards. It was accompanied by three featured articles focusing on the women activists at the heart of the film.
