Wayang Rajakaya Shadow Puppet Documentary

Author's Note: Wayang is a traditional Indonesian puppets. There are many styles from many region and story. Wayang Rajakaya is a contemporary shadow puppets developed by Herlambang Bayu Aji since 2005. Rajakaya has his own rules for style and story of puppets.

Nice documentary about an Indonesian puppeteer and how he has created stories that address current and relevant issues. Good mixture of personal story, symbolism, and puppets in action.
