Sokola Rimba

My favorite quote from last night’s US premier of Sokola Rimba and Q&A with the director, Riri Riza:

In Rimba tribes [Orang Rimba or “Jungle People”], women have a very high status indeed.  Men are often equated to cucumbers, while women are durians.

As the saying goes… When a durian falls on a cucumber, the cucumber is always crushed.  When a cucumber falls on a durian, the cucumber is also crushed.

Check out the trailer below for “The Jungle School”:
