THE KRIS OF LIFE
The cradle of millennial civilizations
An episode from the series HIDDEN ASIA
Centuries ago, a meteorite fell in Central Java.
Seeing it as a gift from the Gods, the Indonesians used it to make a sacred dagger they called the kris. Because of its celestial origins, it is no mere object. It kills. It heals. Above all it is the supreme symbol for a whole people.
This film uncovers a mythical and hidden side of Bali and Java.
