Suara Baru: New Voices on the Indonesian Presidential Elections

Indonesia holds its presidential election on 9 July 2014. This is set to be an important election for the country, with those in power from the New Order regime trying to make a comeback.

As over one-third of the projected 186 million eligible voters will be first-time voters, this election presents an opportunity where young people could make a huge difference in the outcomes.

With this in mind, EngageMedia launched Suara Baru (New Voices), where we invited young filmmakers to create video stories in order to understand youth perspectives on the elections from Java to West Papua to migrant workers in Malaysia. Some of the produced videos are featured below, while the full collection is available here.
