THE TONE WHEELS Australian Premiere in Adelaide Film Festival
Takin’ music to the streets.
Think you’re up on popular music? Dangdut is the music of the streets in Java, and there is no better introduction than following Ubay, Bewok, Iyus and the rest of their crew as they haul their cart, laden with amps, mics, and instruments through the backstreets of Jakarta, performing their distinctive brand of percussive pop for a fistful of rupiah from bystanders. When Ubay decides to up their game by recording an album, he calls in an old friend, Didiet, whose studio gives grunge a whole new meaning. But something wonderful emerges in the act of creation, as the band must overcome obstacles of breaking in a new singer and breaking their computer, in the pursuit of their own big break. A standout at the Jogja-NETPAC Asian Film Festival; a celebration of creative process and artistic determination.
Established in 2003, the Adelaide Film Festival has been recognised by Variety as one of the world’s unmissable 50 film festivals. It’s one of the few film festivals in the world to have its own Investment fund. Through the Adelaide Film Festival Investment Fund, the Adelaide Film Festival has supported the production of some of the most significant Australian films of the last 20 years.
