Keputusan Menteri yang Mengganggu Kenikmatan Penonton

March 21, 2009

Gara2nya adalah kekesalan karena WATCHMEN yang gak kunjung turun ke layar bioskop. Mulanya saya mengira ada masalah dengan sensor (kayaknya kalau film MILK memang gak bisa masuk, entah karena memang tidak didistribusikan atau tidak lolos sensor).

Akhirnya, dari balesan teman2 di blog ini, saya mulai nyari2 informasi. Ketemuanya ini:

“Local Printing Requirement:
On November 25, 2008, Indonesia’s Minister for Culture and Tourism issued a regulation requiring all theatrical prints and home video titles (e.g., on DVD) released in Indonesia to be replicated locally with effect from January 1, 2009.

The Motion Picture Association has met with and written to the Minister of Trade opposing this requirement. IIPA opposes this requirement in the strongest possible terms since it severely interferes with the industry’s ability to engage in its business on free contractual terms.

There are many concerns, chiefly among them being that existing local facilities are unable to handle both the volume and quality output requirements of the motion picture industry, and that the industry cannot be assured that all security issues have been properly identified and dealt with.

The MPA has also met with the Director of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the Director of Film of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, and has written to the Minister seeking another meeting to discuss this most serious issue. “

Kalau masalah ini gak kunjung selesai, persis seperti artikel di atas, ini adalah lonceng kematian bagi sinema Indonesia. Penonton bioskop akan meninggalkan bioskop dan membanjiri DVD bajakan. Keputusan pemerintah untuk melindungi industri lokal untuk memperbanyak film alih2 malah menguntungkan pembajak film.

Dan selaku penunggu bioskop, this regulation sucks! Ketimbang dipenuhi penonton, bioskop kita akan dipenuhi pocong dan kuntilanak (eh, atau udah malah ya…)

In the end, berdoa sajalah… atau nunggu bajakan yang “ori” keluar:mrgreen:

Update terbaru: kayaknya Dragon Ball dan Race to the Witch Mountain sudah mau diputar. Untuk Watchmen tetap wallahualam
