Sokola Rimba

It’s a film based on a real life experience of an environmental activist, Butet Manurung, living inside an isolated forest in Jambi, South Sumatra, and slowly passing knowledge and education to the indigenous children. Inspired by aesthetic elements based on tribal art of Jambi, we created the logotype with chalk typography to represent reading and writing in school. Due to the difficult access to shoot photos of the indigenous casts, we employed full digital imaging in keeping with the film’s scenery of “impenetrable” rain forest.
