Daun di Atas Bantal

Daun di Atas Bantal merespon antara lain tahun emas kemerdekaan Indonesia yang jatuh pada tahun 1995, menceritakan tentang tiga anak jalanan yang sekadar berusaha bertahan hidup di jalanan Yogyakarta. Kancil, Sugeng dan Heru adalah anak-anak yang tidak sempat mengenyam hasil kemerdekaan dan pembangunan, yang harus terus berlari dan menyelinap hanya untuk bisa makan hari itu. Ironisnya, dengan latar belakang parade mewah memperingati tahun emas negara ini.

 

Satu-satunya yang peduli pada mereka hanyalah seorang penjual batik keliling bernama Asih (Christine Hakim), yang juga sama tak berdayanya ketika anak-anak itu dilindas takdir. Pada akhirnya, Asih jugalah satu-satunya yang menjadi saksi keberadaan mereka, dan mungkin juga, yang bisa menyuarakan ketakutan mereka, selirih apapun.

Leaf on a Pillow is Garin Nugroho’s own take on the glimmers of Indonesia’s golden year as a sovereign back in 1995. It tells the story of three street urchins, merely trying to survive on the streets of Jogjakarta. Kancil, Sugeng and Heru had never been fortunate enough to reap any benefit of their nation’s independence. Even when the celebratory parade rolls on, they still have to run against all odds just to make sure there’s something to eat on that day.

 

The only person caring about them is Asih (Christine Hakim), a batik seller, herself struggling to survive and acts as a some kind of mother figure. Even she is powerless when the menaces of society came upon the children and devour them all. In the end, Asih is the only voice they got, to testify that those souls existed, once.
