SYNOPSIS


During the martial law in Aceh (1998 – 2003), the possession of Indonesian IDs by the Aceh residents was another story. This special ID differs from the regular ID issued by the government, both from its design or the personal information written on it. The filmmaker tries to recapture his traumatic experience when he possessed this special ID through the simple animation presentation as an experiment through visual memory approach.

Kepemilikan Kartu Tanda Penduduk (KTP) warga Aceh pada masa darurat militer (1998 – 2003) oleh pemerintah Indonesia, memiliki telusur cerita sendiri. KTP tersebut berbeda dari KTP pada umumnya, baik dari bentuk fisik maupun informasi identitas yang tertera di dalamnya. Penceritaan melalui animasi sederhana ini merupakan eksperimen yang digunakan sebagai pendekatan ingatan visual untuk menceritakan kembali trauma yang dialami pembuat film, terkait dengan pengalaman kepemilikan KTP tersebut.
