Christopher Webster [Film Festival 01.06.09] movie trailer news drama



Director Edwin's Bling Pig Who Wants to Fly takes the form of a collage of sorts featuring four stories about "disoriented identity, not knowing who you are, anxiety, uncertainty, and the experience of being lost, all told with a sense of humor."

A father who is desperate to win a green card lottery, so the family can move to America. An ex-national badminton champion, whose husband leaves her for a Javanese wife. A Menado boy who constantly gets beaten up because everybody thinks that he is Chinese. A young girl who believes that Chinese firecrackers expel ghosts. Set within the contemporary social and racial tension of urban Indonesia, the story follows eight characters in their absurd journey to fit in within society in the hope to live better lives. Like a mosaic, this film is built from shattered pieces of colored glass. Delicate, fragile, beautiful.
