- Story Text: The Asian Film Festival opened in Djakarta last night (Monday).
More than 50 leading Asian film stars plus other move personalities are attending the five-day festival, which was opened by President Suharto.
Fifty films from nine Asian countries have been entered. Many of them have fallen heavily under the censor's axe, reflecting Indonesia's distaste of the permissive trend in film-making today.
At the opening, Djakarta movie fans saw the greatest-and perhaps the most beautiful-collection of stars ever to gather in Indonesia.
The festival ends on Friday when the results will be announced.
