Two Seconds After Laughter

David Rousseve / USA / 2011 / 16 min / Indonesian, English with English subtitles / Color / Digibeta / San Francisco Premiere


An original intersection of documentary, dance performance, and dream-like fantasy, Two Seconds After Laughter is inspired by choreographer Sri Susilowati’s experience of leaving Indonesia to become a dancer in America. Susilowati’s story is told through stunning cinematography, traditional Indonesian dance, and postmodern Sundanese music.
