Letter to Eros
Director: Josko Petkovic
AUSTRALIA / 1995 / Color, B&W / 16mm / 56 min
The narrative of Letter to Eros anchors itself in the ubiquitous discourse of love, written in transit during an exotic journey between East and West. Half of the films journey directs itself towards the Jaranan trance dance of Kediri (East Java), and the Revog trance dance of Ponorogo (East Java). Can the practices of enchantment from the deep past inform us about the nature of the postmodern delirium now unfolding and still to come?
