  • Documentary | 2010 | 65 minutes | Not Rated - From award-winning documentary filmmakers Jim de Sève and Kian Tjong, this unusual film dives into an ancient rite of manhood in Islamic Java – the tender and raucous sport of the singing doves, the Indonesian NASCAR. When General Zainuri announces the Perkutut Championship in Java, Indonesia, thousands of Muslim men arrive at the grounds. Seven hundred poles stand in the center. Men hoist their doves – perkutut – dangling them 20 feet high in a sea of colorful cages. A team of judges roams the forest of posts straining to discern the birds’ magical coos. If impressed, judges tack a flag to the pole. After three hours a winner is declared. Immediately following the screening, there will be a question & answer session with the filmmakers. TICKETS: General Public: $5; Winthrop University Students: FREE + Cultural Event credit
