About the program
Koki-Koki Cilik is a classic underdog story in which Bima, a poor fatherless boy, strives against the odds to win the Cooking Camp Championship. The narrative highlights the importance of friendship, generosity and being true to yourself, as well as celebrating the beauty of the Indonesian landscape.
The film is particularly suitable for middle years students (5-8). Senior students can engage with the film’s examination of class privilege and the questions it asks about cultural authenticity and western influences.
The screening features live Indonesian dancing and is accompanied by a classroom resource.
