Ahmad Fuadi


Country: Indonesia

Ahmad Fuadi’s formative years at an Islamic boarding school inspired his award-winning first novel, Negeri 5 Menara (The Land of Five Towers), which was adapted into a feature film. He was a Fulbright scholar and has been artist-in-residence in Italy, America and the UK, and also founded Komunitas Menara, an organization providing underprivileged children with free early childhood education.

Tahun-tahun yang Ahmad Fuadi habiskan di sebuah Pondok Pesantren adalah sumber inspirasi untuk novel pertamanya, Negeri 5 Menara, yang kemudian diadaptasi menjadi sebuah film layar lebar. Ia menerima beasiswa Fulbright dan pernah menjalani program residensi di Italia, Amerika, dan Inggris, dan ia juga mendirikan Komunitas Menara, sebuah organisasi yang memberikan anak-anak kurang beruntung pendidikan awal gratis.
