Wiswakharman Expo is an annual event held by students of the UGM Architecture Study Program. The event contained an exhibition of architectural design works as a form of student excursions after visiting several places both domestic and overseas known as Kuliah Kerja Arsitektur (KKA). WEX 2019 held at Prambanan Temple presented the theme “Indonesia ‘s Rich Tourism Potential Responding Architecture” with the tagline “Ruang yang Terlewat” which is the result of KKA to Bali, Singapore, and Bangkok. The theme implies that many places in Indonesia are rich in beauty and tourism potential but are still “overlooked” by the community. The hope is that the architectural design exhibition presented can encourage people to be more explorative in exploring tourism objects in Indonesia.
On Thursday (25/4), Dandhy Laksono, a WatchDoc crew shared his knowledge and experience in making documentary films that raised the issue of development.
The use of documentary films as media to raise development issues in Indonesia is now increasing. Films are chosen because tend not to be boring so that they can attract more audiences and hope that the message or issue to be raised can be more easily conveyed. Documentation of development issues through documentaries is also interesting and has various challenges ranging from the process of planning and discovery of issues to taking pictures.
