A Poet

The story is about how Sukarno systematically eliminated pro-communists in Indonesia in the mid 1960s by locking them up in prison cells to be executed. One of them was a poet from Aceh and he was famous for composing traditional folk songs called the Didong.

Liked the nice songs and how everything was filmed inside the prison cell behind bars to highlight the situation of the people then.
