Speaker (in Heb.): Prof. Ronit Ricci, Hebrew University Jerusalem
A Boarding School
Dir.: Shalahuddin Siregar
Indonesia, Japan, Qatar 2019 | 98 minutes | Indonesian, Japanese, Arabic | Hebrew subtitles
Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world; it is also home to thousands of boarding schools that offer traditional Islamic education. These young men and women leave their homes and families behind and build alternative close relationships with each other and with their teachers. Raising their students to respect and have compassion towards others despite their differences, these schools are Indonesia’s last defense in the face of today’s rising extremism. Without judgment, the film discreetly follows the students, and the filming style matches the school’s approach – not what to think, but how to think.
