The World Cup is gonna kick off soon and those who are not so fond of football might ask, what's all the excitement about? Well, there's one Indonesian movie that might give you an idea.
It's based on a true story. After years of religious conflict in Maluku, Sani Tawainela, a football coach of Maluku province, united his team, divided by different religions, to compete in the National Football Competition in Jakarta, and in the end inspired a nation.
Produced by prominent Indonesian singer Glen Fredly, who is also from Maluku, and directed by Angga Dwi Sasongko (Jelangkung 3), this movie will make up, in part, for Indonesia's absence from the World Cup this year. While there's no official English title announced yet, the literal translation of the title will be Lights From The East: I Am Maluku, Check out the trailer below!
