Best Actor, Slamet Ambari Turah: Jadag, the Intense Drunkard
IN Kampung Tirang (Tirang village), a shabby, thin, bare-chested man shouts at villagers. He gestures with his arms, his eyes bulging wildly, spewing out his resentment against an oppressive landowner, unfair wages, and especially the interminable poverty choking his village. Jadag, the man, seems to be the only one restless and frustrated, while the rest of the villagers simply accept their lot in life and are even thankful for it.
Young coconut shell was on the lunch menu of Fransisca Patatcot and her son on Saturday two weeks ago. Sitting next to each other on the wooden porch of the Santo Petrus Paulus Church, Pulau Tiga District, Asmat Regency, Papua, they snacked on the coconut shell. When the coconut shell was finished, she began eating the husk.
