Lensa Srikandi is delighted to present a screening of “Mencari Kartika”, the first documentary feature by Norhayati Kaprawi.

40 min, Malay with English subtitles

A panel discussion will follow after the screening. With Prof Shad Saleem Faruqi (Law Faculty, UITM), Saadiah Din (practicing shariah lawyer) & Norhayati Kaprawi.

First-time filmmaker Norhayati Kaprawi was inspired to make “Mencari Kartika” after surveys by polling house Merdeka Center found a large majority of Muslims in Malaysia supported the caning of Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno for consuming alcohol. This documentary explores the Muslims’s perception of ‘justice’ in the context of Malaysia that is lauded for its modern, progressive, multi-racial image.

The Nut Graph’s Jacqueline Ann Surin says the film is important because “it reveals a truth about what made international headlines by letting us in on the private and the political in a way that media reports failed to.” In fact, Kartika herself has endorsed the film, saying that it offers viewers a larger truth about her actions and statements after she was sentenced.

A 30-minute version of the film, co-directed by Norhayati Kaprawi and Ucu Agustin, was screened at the V Women Film Festival in Jakarta in March 2010. Its first Malaysian screening, on 26 May, was met with enthusiasm by the media and the public. So, don’t miss the opportunity to watch this interesting documentary film!
