In 1997 I completed a biography of Soe Hok-gie, a young Indonesian political activist and intellectual of the 1960s. In 2004 the Indonesian film company Miles Films released the movie ‘GieŸ? based on the life of SHG. My talk will draw some links between these two events and hopefully provide a few insights into an ‘industry’ that may be foreign territory for many people.
