This Is The Bleak Future Of Jakarta, A City In Ruins Left To Rot



The old Jakarta is gone.

The ghost of the bustling metropolis lies under water, skyscrapers and monuments a bedrock of the trash that sink to the bottom.


In it’s place is Djakarta-00, a chaotic world built on the ruins of the past.

Gani and Antya are two kindred souls who find each other in the heart of town.


This man of the past and the lady of the future find themselves trapped in the dystopic present.

In this surrealistic animation, there is no cure for the damage done. But if we heed their warning, there’s still hope for ours.
