The Points Beside – Rooftop and Afternoon Talks
That leads us to ‘Rooftop and Afternoon Talks’. Directed by Riyadi Prabowo, the story is exactly what it says on the film tin. It features two characters, Gema (Galih Prasetyo) and Nayla (Fajrina Faluhukay), lazily whiling away an afternoon on top of a building in Jakarta, Indonesia. It’s quite an idyllic scene, a break for ‘fresh air’ away from the busy urban life below (more on this later). In between the puffs of life, however, lies more prevalent questions related to interreligious marriages. This is first broached by Nayla, who merely asks: “How long will we be like this?” I didn’t quite get it at first, but it became clear soon enough that she is talking about the state of their romantic relationship, indicating a difference in the direction of their prayers. Gema appears to be of Chinese ethnicity, an identity often conflated in Indonesia with a non-Islamic persuasion. This is confirmed later through their interaction, where they enact the different marriage practices of their faith.
