In Banda Aceh, on the northwestern tip of the island of Sumatra, there is a small and often misunderstood group of punks who have been labelled a “social disease” as Shari’a law has become more established over the last 10 years since the Indian Ocean tsunami.

‘Street Punk! Banda Aceh’ explores the punk scene in one of the Indonesia’s most religiously restricted regions, and shows the reality and struggle of the punks in their daily lives.

Directed by Maria Bakkalapulo and produced by Niall Macaulay.
