Rolling Films on a Rolling River

Monthly Bioskop Tukad Launched

A highly innovate film experience is now available once each month in downtown Denpasar, Bali as part of the renovation and gentrification of Bali’s capital city program starting from the modern and new Badung (Pasar Badung) and Kumbasari Markets and the adjacent Badung River.

Premiered on May 25, 2019, the Bisokop Tukad (River Theatre) features a giant screen suspended over the flowing river with seating available on each shore.

Intended to be part of the Denpasar Documentary Film Festival (DDFF) the focus will be on Indonesian documentary films.

During the launch on Saturday night, May 25, 2019, the films shown were selected from finalists of the Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC) and included: Layang-Layang (Kites) by Resha Arundari, Tradisi Turunan (Hereditary Tradition) by Putu Sathyana Rayana, and Penempa Bara (Bara Forge) by Sari Ning Gayatri.

In the future, films made for a competition sponsored by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) will also be shown.

The picturesque, cool and relative clean new river walk opened on the Tukad Badung River is targeted to become a new “city-center” where families and tourists can gather while shopping or dining at nearby food outlets.

While it is not completely clear from the information on hand, the assumption is that on the last Saturday of each month a new set of films will be screened.
