Nurkurniati Aisyah Dewi (Nia Dinata)Indonesian Film Director
Dinata was born Nurkurniati Aisyah Dewi in Jakarta on 4 March 1970. As a child, Dinata watched movies weekly. After finishing high school, she received a bachelor's degree in mass communications from Elizabethtown College in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, where she became interested in cinematography. She then took a filmmaking course at New York University. After returning to Indonesia, she took her first job as an apprentice reporter for Seputar Indonesia. She later began directing video clips and commercials with Iguana Productions in the mid-1990s, studying the techniques on her own.
Dinata made her directorial debut with the 1998 made-for-television film Mencari Pelangi (Looking for the Rainbow), which won two national awards. She then started her own production company, Kalyana Shira Film, around 1999. Her first feature film, Ca-bau-kan, was produced by Kalyana Shira and dealt with the trials and tribulations of Chinese Indonesians in pre-independence Indonesia. After being trimmed from its original running time of 160 minutes to 124 minutes for commercial viability, the film—adapted from the novel by Remy Sylado—was critically panned; Dinata herself was satisfied, saying it was "as good as it could be for that short running time". She produced Sekar Ayu Asmara's debut, Biola Tak Berdawai, the following year.
The next film she directed, 2003's Arisan! (The Gathering), had gay themes and was produced on a small budget. It is considered one of her more commercially successful films, being seen by over 500,000 people, and the first Indonesian film dealing with homosexuality. Its success surprised her, as most of the commercially successful films at the time were horrors and children's films.
After the success of Arisan!, Dinata was able to find more sponsors for her movies. In 2004, she was invited to join the Cannes Young Directors Program, and the following year she produced Joko Anwar's directorial debut Janji Joni (Joni's Promise). Another film she directed, 2006's Berbagi Suami (Love for Share), about polygamy in Indonesia, was based on her personal experiences when her father took a second wife.
In 2007, Dinata produced Quickie Express, described in the press as a sex comedy but by Dinata herself as a "love story with social content". This was followed by the short-film collection Perempuan Punya Cerita (Chants of Lotus), which featured one directed by her, Gara-Gara Bola (Soccer Riot), which she produced, and the documentary Pertaruhan (At Stake).
In 2009, Dinata and the Kalyana Shira Foundation she runs started the Indonesian International Children's Film Festival. The festival showcases both local and international children's films and involves children in all aspects of the festival. As of 2011, it has been run three times.
As of April 2011, Dinata is producing a sequel to Arisan!. Filming was expected to begin in May, with the release scheduled for 1 December 2011, eight years after the first instalment. In 2011 Dinata also collaborated with Ucu Agustin on Batik: Our Love Story, a documentary on the traditional textile batik. Dinata directed, while Ucu served as screenwriter.
