Indonesia. The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has produced a film to educate the public of the dangers of graft in Indonesia. KPK head Abraham Samad said that it could be an entertaining way of educating the public. The stories for the film came out of a writing contest held in September 2010. The stories were then polished by media figures, social media activists, journalists and the KPK leadership.
The film comprises of four shorts, all tied together by a common thread. Each of the shorts was made by a young Indonesian filmmaker.
The film will not be shown at commercial cinemas. Instead it will be taken around to major cities throughout the country for special screenings.
It will be noted that Anna Hazare of India also said that more films highlighting this issue should be produced to fight corruption. He added that a film like this will convey the message in a much better way even in rural areas. He was speaking after a special screening of the Hindi film “Gali Gali Chor Hai”, which carries an ant-corruption message.
