“Prenjak, In The Year Of Monkey” was played three times in the Cannes Film Festival 2016. The movie tells story about a Yogyakarta girl in the 1980's who is struggling to be independent economically to support her family. Before working on big movies, Wregas, along with his magical ideas, garnered prizes in several local and international competitions for his short movies, which often carry deep messages in their lighthearted plots. He had walked on several red carpets, from such a young age! Starting from the Berlinale Film Festival, over the Hong Kong International Film Festival to Cannes Film Festival.
It is such an honor for all Indonesian people to achieve something big and prestigious like that and I'm glad that Indonesia has shown the world that we are capable of a lot of things. Let's show them all that we can!
