Richard Oh’s death has left a sorrowful void in the literary community. We will remember him as a writer, director, and a great patron of Indonesian literature who, for more than 20 years, has consistently organized the Kusala Sastra Khatulistiwa, a prestigious literary award. As a tribute to his work, we will be screening his film, The Hunt, which is based on Pramoedya Ananta Toer’s monumental novel.

Meninggalnya Ricard Oh menyisakan duka kehilangan. Kita akan mengenangnya sebagai sosok penulis, sutradara, bahkan juga maecenas sastra Indonesia yang selama lebih dari 20 tahun konsisten menyelenggarakan Kusala Sastra Khatulistiwa, sebuah penghargaan sastra bergengsi. Sebagai penghormatan atas karyanya, akan diputar sebuah karya film terbaiknya, Perburuan, yang diangkat dari novel Pramoedya Ananta Toer yang monumental.
