Screening at Aston Denpasar for Cancer Patients

Ticket sales of a movie entitled “Cita-Citaku Setinggi Tanah” (My Dream is as High as a Land)) in Denpasar on Sunday were donated for cancer patients.

The screening at meeting hall of Aston Denpasar Hotel was attended by approximately 600 people from children to adults.

Rike Liwan as the Public Relation Manager Aston Denpasar Hotel and Convention Center said that the ticket sales, which is Rp 50.000 per person, are donated for cancer patients through Yayasan Kasih Anak Kanker Indonesia.

He is really glad that he could help the event entirely by preparing facilities and equipment so that the screening of a movie about four best friends could run smoothly.

Meilany Adolfin Runtuweneas the executive producer of the movie said that the process of making Cita-CitakuSetinggi Tanah took two years and it is available at all cinemas in Indonesia since last year.

Now the movie that tells about dreams of four children is played at a film festival in another country.

“Several days ago we just got back from Berlinale International Film Festival. On that great event this film is one of the best nominees for children film category,” she said.

CCST now is available in cinema but she gives opportunity for institutions that want to screen it.

According to Meilany, the children movie is the first one in the world donating its ticket sales to cancer patients.

“The ticket sales had been reformed into a shelter for children who have cancer. Beside Jakarta there are some cities that already has a shelter, such as Surabaya, Bandung and Denpasar,” she said.

The moral that this movie wants to deliver is that to achieve dream or goal is not easy. Everything must under goes process with strong commitment to make it true.
