Veronica Widjaja

UNBREAKABLE (Indonesia, 2006)

Veronica Widjaja has produced a portrait of Evi Juwita, a 29-year-old Muslim from Aceh who lost her husband and small son during the tsunami. Her role in coordinating the reconstruction led to her having her own business that rebuilds homes for victims who are not able to do the rebuilding themselves. As a contractor Evi now operates in a man's world, as an example of emancipation in Islamic Aceh. In this, she is an exception. Because in most Islamic countries women are regarded as inferior, the majority of their women will never fulfill any role of importance, in either the family or society.
