The Eye of the Day is the first part of the acclaimed Leonard Retel Helmrich Trilogy, also including Shape of the Moon and Position Among the Stars. In 1998, a deep political and economic crisis forced President Suharto to resign after 32 years in power. This was the beginning of the tumultuous period known in Indonesia as the Reformasi. With a population of 200 million, Indonesia has seen ongoing political change, accompanied by protests, poverty and general insecurity.
The Eye of the Day documents these conflicts as they play out in the lives of sixty-year-old Rumidja, her two sons Bakti and Dwi, and her friend Ibu Sum. In the cinema verite tradition, filmmaker Helmrich creates this cinematographic feast for the eyes while capturing the trials and tribulations of everyday life in Indonesia today.
