The Indonesian Embassy in Manila, in partnership with SM Cinema and the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), recently held an exclusive screening of the Indonesian film “Wonderful Life” at the SM Mall of Asia Drive-in Cinema.

The movie by Indonesian filmmaker Agus Makkie is a heartwarming family drama about single mom Amalia and her son Aqil, who is diagnosed with dyslexia. The story revolves around the mother and son’s quest to finding the cure to Aqil’s difficulties in school and in life due to his specific learning disorder.

Indonesian Embassy officials led by Charge d’Affaires Widya Rahmanto, members of the diplomatic corps, and representatives from the Department of Foreign Affairs, National Commission for Culture and the Arts, Philippine Dyslexia Foundation and FDCP graced the event.
