Pembukaan Pameran Jajahan Gambar Bergerak : Antara Fakta Dan Fiksi.

Tepat pukul 19.30 WIB, Program Peradaban Sinema Dalam Pameran bertajuk “Jajahan Gambar Bergerak : Antara Fakta dan Fiksi” resmi dibuka. Salah satu program andalan dari rangkaian acara ARKIPEL Grand Illusion – 3rd Jakarta International Documentary & Experimental Film Festival ini dikuratori oleh Mahardika Yudha, Koordinator Divisi Penelitian dan Pengembangan Forum Lenteng. Pameran ini akan berlangsung dari 19-29 Agustus 2015, bertempat di Galeri Cipta III Taman Ismail Marzuki, Jakarta, mulai pukul 16.00-21.00 WIB dan terbuka untuk umum.

“Jadi, konsep yang saya ambil  adalah bagaimana menyajikan arsip-arsip perfileman Indonesia,” jelas pria yang akrab dipanggil Diki itu. “Mulai dari tahun 1896, saat pertama kali filem masuk, hingga produksi pertama filem di tahun 1905-1910, disaat produksi filem pertama di Hindia Belanda.”

Tempat pameran ini terdiri dari dua lantai. Di lantai pertama, kita akan disuguhkan beberapa poster filem, arsip koran, dan layar-layar yang menampilkan foto-foto, menggambarkan periode budaya menonton filem pertama di Indonesia. Sedangkan di lantai kedua, adalah awal periode produksi filem di Hindia Belanda. Uniknya, di lantai dua ini, penempatan layar memungkinkan pengunjung pameran untuk melihat gambar bergerak dari dua sisi, seperti layar tancap.

“Itu menggambarkan realitas menonton saat itu, di mana orang Belanda menontonnya dari depan, sementara pribumi dari belakang. Jadi, menontonnya terbalik, gitu…” ujar Diki yang juga Direktur OK. Video – Indonesia Media Art Festival tersebut.

ARKIPEL – Jakarta International Documentary & Experimental Film Festival sendiri, tahun ini, merupakan perhelatan yang ketiga kalinya dari Forum Lenteng. Menurut Yuki Aditya, Direktur Festival ARKIPEL, tahun ini terasa lebih istimewa. Banyak hal yang bertambah, baik dari jumlah negara yang berpatisipasi, jumlah filem yang didaftarkan untuk kompetisi Internasional, jumlah institusi yang turut bekerja sama, maupun jumlah tamu dari festival rekanan yang diundang.

“Tahun ini, kita juga mengadakan program untuk publik yang lebih banyak, agar masyarakat pecinta filem, khususnya dokumenter dan ekperimental, lebih aware akan keberadaan jenis filem ini,” kata lelaki yang sudah menjabat sebagai Direktur Festival ARKIPEL sejak perhelatannya yang pertama.

Beberapa program yang diperuntukkan untuk publik, antara lain Master Class bersama Jon Jost, yang oleh festival ini dianggap sebagai “one of the most influential American independent filmmaker”, dan akan digelar di @America Pacific Place, tanggal 26 Agustus 2015, pukul 14.00 WIB. Pun tak akan kalah menariknya dengan Kuliah Umum Benjamin Cook, Direktur Lux Moving Image, sebuah agensi seni besar kelas dunia yang berbasis di London, dan akan diselenggarakan di Auditorium IKJ, tanggal 25 Agustus 2015, pukul 14.00 WIB.

“Nah, kita juga mengadakan yang namanya Forum Festival. Kita mengundang filmmaker dan komunitas-komunitas filem Indonesia, bahkan dunia. Partisipan forum ini akan bertukar pengalaman dan pengetahun tentang wacana dan strategi mengorganisasi festival filem,” lanjut Yuki dengan semangat. Forum Festival ini akan diadakan di Auditorium IKJ, tanggal 28 Agustus 2015, pukul 14.00 WIB.

Seperti yang dikatakan oleh Irawan Karseno, Ketua Dewan Kesenian Jakarta dalam pidato pembukaan pameran ini, bahwa beliau selalu mendukung semangat anak muda yang berkreasi sekaligus merawat kebudayaan. Maka, tidak ada salahnya jika kita datang, berdiskusi, menonton dan bergembira di pesta film dokumenter dan eksperimental terbesar di Asia Tenggara ini.

Selamat Menikmati.
