Our School, Our Lives (Sekolah Kami Hidup Kami)
Documentary filmmaker Steve Pillar Setiabudi (Pilar) initially wanted to get some insight on democracy and political awareness from his young subjects, a group of third year high school students in Solo, who are about to graduate soon and enter another phase of their lives as college students and would become eligible to give their votes on the upcoming election in 2009.
Much to Pilar’s surprise his subjects were playing a key role in revealing the act of corruption that had been taken place in their school. The young students had been successful in conducting a very systematic investigation that lead them to some valid findings.
