Batik of Java
 Documentary, 2017, 90 minutes, a film by Andrew Galli and Daniel Gundlach
 In Bahasa Indonesia with English Subtitles

Batik tells a story like no other textile can about the history of an island people and their beliefs. From early influences of Hinduism and Islamic trade to a demand for brightly colored floral cloths highly prized in Europe, batik has made its way from the Sultans Palace in Yogyakarta to the village community, where highly skilled artisans produce batik for a range of buyers and tastes. Join us on this journey into the heart of batik making as we bring the process and the story of batik to life.

We visit a family in Ambarawa, north Java, who produces indigo pigment to supply to numerous workshops across Java. From there we visit a collective of artisans in Central Java who take us through then entire process with rich narrative and stunning visuals along the way. We learn about their interesting past and their ideas for the future.
