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.
