[AMA] I am the filmmaker of Calon
Diego Batara (He prefers 'Deo') majored in Communication at Al-Azhar University, Indonesia. He strives to communicate with people via films. He fell in love with films when he was 7 after watching Jurassic Park (Steven Spielberg). What he likes most is 'Escapism' and 'Emotion'. When they are combined together in a film, it's the best one for Deo.
He has worked as a director of 4 short films. One of his major works is titled Calon (The candidate, 2015), which is about the story of a guy asking permission to his girlfriend's father. With this film, Deo got selected from 5 different International Film Festivals including Jogia-Netpac Asian Film Festival, Aceh Film Festival, etc. Furthermore, he brought I just wanna shout (2015) to MOFILM Chevrolet London Contest in 2015.
He dreams to be the first Indonesian who wins an Oscar for the best foreign film.
Ask Diego anything and he will answer them for you on Saturday, 24th December 2016!
