IFC 2014: Eat, Pray, Mourn

Eat, Pray, Mourn: Crime and Punishment in Jakarta by Siobhán McHugh (Australia) is about life and death. Maybe overdone in terms of sound and language, it is a striking story about the lynching of Buyung the thief believed to have magical powers, the shooting of Yusli by the police, suspected of having stolen a motorbike, about violence lying just inches underneath the surface of everyday life in rural Indonesia.
