Frangipani Rising 

Director: Andrea Hachuel

Frangipani Rising is a modern fairy tale set on a beautiful island where the moon and nature seem to have a strange power over the inhabitants.

Not even the moonlit escapades with his friends, nor the beauty that surrounds him can seem to lift his spirits. Until one night, pushed by despair, he curses at the moon and blames her for his fate. The next morning, Nyoman discovers his house has been shaken by an earthquake, and something unthinkable has grown in his garden…

Malam yang sepi, sebuah tongkrongan mulai kehabisan topik pembicaraan. Mereka merekam suara mereka, dan iseng mereka mulai mengulik mimpi-mimpi mereka. Obrolan berlangsung asik, selagi masing-masing anggota mulai mengingat mimpi mereka satu-persatu. Audy (23) bercerita perjalanannya melihat banyak macam dinosaurus dari dalam mobil di kota Jakarta. Al (23) bercerita ketika ia ditugaskan menjadi seorang pembunuh bayaran yang tidak dibayar. Angga (23) bercerita ketika ia diajak jalan-jalan oleh seekor ular kobra raksasa ke palung Mariana. Selesai itu pun rasa bosan mereka tidak hilang. Baterai alat rekam mulai habis, durasi rekaman mencapai 1 jam, hiburan dan informasi tidak penting ini rupanya… bagus juga ya dijadiin film.
