Suni Satoinong
2019, 19:20’, Indonesia/the Netherlands, HD video, Indonesian/ Mentawai with English subtitles

Filmed in Siberut, Indonesia, The Making of a Ruin is an intimate study of displacement, heritage and identity. Two ghosts contemplate about life and death, in close proximity to the island’s first concrete grave. The film is Suni Satoinong’s graduation project at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie.
