Jakarta buskers star in award-winning film

'Jalanan' follows the lives of three street performers in Jakarta.

    They're unlikely heroes starring in a film showing their lives on the streets of Jakarta.

    The documentary, Jalanan, follows three street buskers showing a life many don't know about.

    The film that won the best documentary award at the largest Asian film festival in South Korea is making an appearance in Indonesian cinemas where documentaries are hardly shown.

    This is a special, extended version of Jakarta correspondent Step Vaessen’s report airing on Al Jazeera English on Thursday, 17 April.
