Hiruk-pikuk si al-kisah (The Science of Fictions)
Siman discover a foreign crew shooting a moon landing. He gets caught and his tongue is cut off. He goes through life in slow motion, imitating an astronaut in outer space, labeled as crazy.
In the year that marks the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, Yosep Anggi Noen goes back to this landmark moment and reimagines it to have been staged in Indonesia. Siman is an inadvertent witness of this staging. Forced into silence, the truth weighs heavier on his shoulders each day. Our era of fake news may fool us into thinking it is a new phenomenon; in fact, the fabrication of fact has been an age-old story, and the Indonesian state a culprit.Julian Ross
