LELEB  (Director of Photography & Co-Director)
Short Film | Runtime 3:20’ | 2022

Watch on Nowness

Leleb, (sinking or drowning in Javanese) is a project about the futility and visceral grief of clinging to a home that will inevitably disappear. In central Java, Indonesia’s most populous island, human manipulation of the environment has caused coastal villages to begin to sink into the sea. Although the area has become increasingly unlivable, most residents still remain, clinging to the final vestiges of what is left of their communities. We seek to pay tribute to those who endure. Working alongside Javanese dancer Siko Setyanto and soundtracked by the experimental Javanese band Senyawa, Leleb seeks to be an intimate portrait of resilience and a reminder of the difficult and sometimes painful relationship between humanity and the space it occupies.

Infinite Beginnings is four portraits centered on the theme of protection and transformation, exploring the ways in which decorative objects can act as armor — balancing softness and strength in as we move through our everyday.
