Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of this book, which explores historically emergent forms of representation and imagination of communities in the Indonesian audio-visual mediascape and addresses the impact of discourses and film mediation practices on the production of collective identities and social realities. The author's account ranges from discussions on the 'idealized Indonesian self in television discourses' and film under the New Order, to a topsy-turvy heated debate about the representation of the Indonesian nation and the daily lived reality of the people in film and on television in 2007. The book is divided into three parts, each consisting of two chapters. The first part contains an analysis of film mediation practices; the second is about film discourse practices, while the third studies film narrative practices.

Keywords: film mediation practices; Indonesian audio-visual mediascape; New Order; social realities
