A kind of Indonesian Woodstock, but then more political. More than 18 years ago, these legendary recordings of a group of rock musicians and poets known as Kantata Takwa were shelved. A new political situation and digital technology makes a screening possible after all. Still filled with fire. —In

IMO, KANTATA TAKWA is one of the best achievement in Indonesian cinema. It's a movie where you can see some best Indonesian artists in one frame, such as Iwan Fals, W.S. Rendra, Setiawan Djody, & many more. It succeed to criticize Indonesian government back in the 1990's. KANTATA TAKWA didn't just deliver the social commentary, it also gives a unique, yet aesthetic touch in its storytelling. I really, really loved it
melihat Iwan Fals jaman dulu dan konser Kantata Takwa nya bersama sahabat-sahabatnya. sungguh Luar biasa. Liriknya puitis... tapi sa masih bingung lihat perempuan berkerudung yang selalu muncul pada saat adegan penyiksaan-penyiksaan, maksudnya apa ya ? kalau ada yang tau, boleh lah kasih tau saya. thomasjeff16 dia juga puyeng katanya.
