Indonesia, the land of many islands, is geographically unique. The land area, of almost 2,000,000 square kilometres, is made up of a myriad of islands : Kilimantan; the second largest in the world, Sumatra, Java, Sulawesi, Irian Jaya, the famous Bali and many other islands, some barely the size of a city square, dispersed along the equator, stretching from Sabang to Meranke. Indonesia is an exciting blend of Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, Chinese and Dutch cultures.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
