The pictures: Nia and her fans in a dinner and chat with Indonesian students, at 12th floor, Hale Manoa. (well, there are more pictures taken with other cameras; this is the only good one from my camera, without me).
It was productive and nice; students and families came with their food, drinks, leis, and more importantly with their enthusiasm.
I moderated the chat. The questions were around the planning and making process (budget, length of production, etc), the idea behind the theme, why the sequences begin with pak Kiyai, then ordinary couples, the different scenes, the current situation and prospect of Indonesian film industry, who the more lucky men in the movie were, how the actors/actresses were selected, how Mbak Nia was able to produce a good movie (she replied passion and quality), and other issues.
Eveyone then enjoyed the food (different kinds of delicious food: ketupat sayur, chicken, fried rice, tofu, a sweet cake with "congratulations Love for Share", grapes, etc). There were a lot of pictures taken; everyone seemed happy. No one missed congratulating Mbak Nia. No one missed taking pictures with her.
