    • Synopsis
    • For 12 years, filmmaker Leonard Retel Helmrich has followed an Indonesian family from the slums of Jakarta. Just as in his previous two multiple award-winning documentaries THE EYE OF THE DAY and THE SHAPE OF THE MOON, Retel continues to show us the underlying patterns of life in Indonesia through the Sjamsuddin family. He presents this both literally and metaphorically with his revolutionary camera work. And his intimate access provides viewers a microcosm that reveals the most important issues of life in Indonesia today: corruption, conflict between religions, gambling addiction, the generation gap, and the growing difference between poor and rich. One does not have to have seen the previous films to fully enjoy POSITION AMONG THE STARS.
