Date: Friday, March 9, 2012; 11:00 a.m. – 12:45 p.m.
Location: East West Center ; Burns Hall Schramm Room (4th floor)
A film by Jim de Seve and Kian Tjong
ManDove follows the magical perkutut birds casting spells on men, taking them away from their wives, and pitting them against each other to prove their masculinity. In a peculiar travelogue, two filmmakers dive into an ancient rite of manhood in Islamic Java – the tender and raucous sport of the singing doves, the Indonesian NASCAR. With its rich human dimension, it is one of the most unusual bird documentaries ever made.
The event is free and open to the public.
Reception to follow screening.
