Ceritalah Indonesia chronicles the transformation of Indonesia from 1998 to 2014. Once a nation in turmoil, Indonesia is now a rising regional power thanks to the wisdom of its leaders and the resilience of its people.
The writer Karim Raslan - who has travelled across the archipelago for more than 20 years - explores the lives and stories of ordinary Indonesians across the archipelago while also identifying new, emerging, challenges to Indonesia.
He explores four locations which highlights the stunning diversity of Indonesia - Solo, Banda Aceh, Ambon and Surabaya - to understand one of the most remarkable developments of our time.
Aceh, on Indonesia's north eastern-most tip, is proud of its illustrious history and deep Islamic roots. Nevertheless, an unthinkable tragedy occurred when it was struck by the 2004 Boxing Day Indian Ocean tsunami, which led to thousands of deaths.
The tragedy showed the power of nature, or “Alam” to wreck both good and ill in the land.
He also encounters Bulqaini, a local Aceh media practitioner, who reveals the massive and largely untapped tourism potential that the province possesses.
