Unfinished Indonesia examines the political use and abuse of Islamic appeals and symbols in Indonesia’s 2019 national elections. Against this gripping contemporary backdrop, the film also explores the question of how the place of Islam in the Indonesian nation came to be such a point of contention, and its implications for rival understandings of Islam, citizenship, and nation today.

Unfinished Indonesia (47 minutes) is part of the “Indonesian Pluralities” series, a collaborative work between the Center for Religious and Cross-cultural Studies (CRCS) UGM, WatchdoC Documentary, and Pardee School of Global Studies, Boston University; with support from the Henry Luce Foundation.
