MOVIE ABOUT INDONESIAN PEACEKEEPING CONTINGENT TO PREMIERE IN DECEMBER
A quite rare movie about an Indonesian Military (TNI) troop during a round of duty in Lebanon as part of the UN peacekeeping force is slated for launch on Dec. 15.
Starring Rio Dewanto and Yama Carlos, I Leave My Heart in Lebanon follows Indonesian peacekeeping contingent Garuda XXIII and its captain Satria as they face many challenges, including rescuing a Spanish soldier who is being held hostage by Hezbollah. The story also offers some romance when Satria meet Rania, an elementary school teacher who visits schools to provide health checks.
As reported by Antara news agency, the film, which was filmed in both Indonesia and Lebanon, seeks to promote Indonesia’s peacekeeping work and accomplishments in international forums.
