Wayang Budiman Presents “The Ronggeng Dancer”

Kelab Seni Filem Malaysia in collaboration with Wayang Budiman presents

The Ronggeng Dancer / Nji Ronggeng

Nji Ronggeng takes a popular film genre (melodrama) and uses it as a framework for the representation of a traditional folk dance and its social context. The film, set in West Java in the 1930s, draws extensively upon local folk traditions sometimes modifying or amplifying them for purposes of the plot, which centres on the rivalry between two sons of local village heads. Both seek the hand of a Ronggeng dancer who holds a disadvantaged social position. One of the earliest feature films made in colour in Indonesia.
