Sepuloh (2013)

Sepuloh was a short film I produced back in 2013. It won the Best Student Drama (Foreign) at the International Family Film Festival 2013, and was an official selection for several other film festivals. Watch the video below:

The Story

The perfect job. The perfect wife. The perfect life. Johan’s life has always been perfect, up until he had his first son, Imran, whom the doctors diagnosed with autism. Unable to deal with the ‘imperfection’ in his otherwise flawless life, Johan wallows in work instead and his constant absence eventually causes his wife to ask for a divorce.

Tasked with telling Imran about it, Johan finally spends some time teaching his son to ride a bicycle. During these last moments together, however, Imran shows Johan that life isn’t without its scrapes and teaches him an important lesson:

Life doesn’t always have to be a perfect ten.
