The Skinheads of Asia


The Skinheads of Asia gives the viewer an astonishing insight into a group of Asians who have deliberately chosen a lifestyle that marginalizes them from mainstream society.

Hadi became a skinhead when he was in his twenties. Today, he is the leader of the skinhead generation in Indonesia. Not ashamed or apologetic for his chosen lifestyle, Hadi brings us into his world of tattoos, body piercings and fixed ideologies. Why are young Indonesian men and women joining him? What is their quest in life?

The story also takes us to Hanover, Germany to examine the skinhead movement there. How are the German skinheads different from their Asian counterparts?
