An Indonesian Filmmaker Won The Grand Prize in The ADB's "MyView H2O" Video Competition




MANILA, PHILIPPINES (21 March 2011) –  Just one scoop of water will give you a fulfilling, enjoyable and cleansing shower, says the Indonesian independent filmmaker who has won the grand prize in the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) "MyView H2O" video competition. 

ADB supported this year's contest to promote awareness of the causes, implications and solutions to Asia's looming water crisis. The winners have been announced on the eve of World Water Day, an annual global event designed to highlight the critical importance of sustainably managing the earth's fragile freshwater resources.

In his winning entry, Jakarta based Muhammad "Wawan" Zulqamar cleverly illustrates in just over one minute, and without words, how showering and conserving water can go hand in hand.

"Save Water won not only because it is so well directed and photographed but because it has such a powerful message told simply, concisely and with wit and impact," said Ann Quon Principal Director of ADB's Department of External Relations and one of the judging panel.

Also on the judging panel were international award-winning director Momoko Ando from Japan; Joko Anwar from Indonesia, often cited as one of Asia's best young directors; US documentary maker and lecturer Christopher Beaver, co-founder and curator of the online documentary sitedocspopuli.com; the "father of Philippine digital filmmaking" Khavn dela Cruz; Du Haibin one of the People's Republic of China's most prolific and internationally awarded young documentary makers; Samar Minallah, a multi-award winning documentary maker from Pakistan, and Arjun Thapan, Special Senior Advisor to the President of ADB.

In the Under-21 category, "Time to Refill" by 18-year-old Emmanuel "Joe" Ortigas of the Philippines was the winner. The video shows the dangers of the world running out of water. In the over-21 category, "My Riverside Home" a moving story about one woman's life from Filipino director Nash Anggahan was the winner.

In Asia and the Pacific, about half a billion people still lack access to potable water and ADB estimates that about $8 billion a year will be needed to meet the Millennium Development Goal target for safe drinking water in the region over the next decade. In addition, no area of the world is more vulnerable to climate change and water shortages, with rising temperatures, sea levels and extreme weather events threatening the food security, livelihoods, health and homes of millions of people. The poor are most at risk because of their high dependence on natural resources and limited livelihood and mobility options.

RSBI Konsep Pendangkalan Mutu

Ketua Pelaksana Harian Ikatan Keluarga Alumni Universitas Negeri Surabaya (Ika Unesa) Dr. Soeryanto menegaskan konsep RSBI lemah dan tak memiliki rujukan akademis. Evaluasi pelaksanaan yang dilakukan Kemdiknas akhir-akhir ini sia-sia saja. 


"Evaluasi itu tidak ada gunanya. Konsep RSBI saja sudah salah, lalu apanya yang akan dievaluasi," tegas Dr. Soeryanto di Surabaya, Senin (21 Maret 2011).

Menurutnya, perguruan tinggi pencetak guru di Indonesia justru lebih mampu membuat sekolah yang lebih baik dari RSBI."Jika diberi kesempatan, UNESA insyaAllah mampu membuat konsep sekolah yang lebih baik daripada RSBI," tandas Dr. Soeryanto, yang juga dosen di UNESA.

Sebagai PT terbesar di Indonesia Timur, UNESA memiliki sumber daya terbaik dalam bidang pendidikan. Selain itu, UNESA juga memiliki hampir semua fasilitas penunjang yang memungkinkan terciptanya sebuah konsep sekolah bermutu melebihi RSBI yang tidak keruan juntrungnya itu.

"Kami belum diberi kesempatan saja. Jika dana ratusan milyar bahkan trilyunan dari APBN dan APBD yang dikucurkan untuk RSBI yang tak jelas itu disisihkan sebagian saja untuk membuat konsep sekolah model dengan kualitas mendunia, tentu kami bisa. Sayangnya Kemdiknas justru malah membuat RSBI yang tidak jelas konsepnya dan dipastikan akan gagal. Saya yakin PT sekelas UNESA pasti siap jika diberi peluang dan dukungan anggaran," tambah Soeryanto.

Menanggapi keinginan Dewan Surabaya yang ngotot akan mendirikan 12 RSBI lagi, Soeryanto menyatakan kengototan Dewan itu akibat mereka tidak memahami konsep RSBI yang amburadul yang disusun tanpa riset akademis. 



"Mereka tak paham. Kalau paham, mungkin mereka akan membubarkan RSBI," tegasnya.


Pendangkalan Mutu

Sementara itu, Ketua Ikatan Guru Indonesia Satria Dharma menyatakan UNESA merupakan perguruan tinggi dengan reputasi bidang pendidikan yang membanggakan. UNESA mencetak guru-guru terbaik selama ini. 


"Jika pemerintah dan pemerintah daerah memberi perhatian pada UNESA, saya yakin UNESA pasti mampu membuat konsep sekolah yang lebih berkualitas dibandingkan RSBI," tandas Satria.

Satria menunjukkan hasil evaluasi sementara Kemdiknas yang dipaparkan Wamendiknas Fasli Jalal justru menunjukkan acakadulnya pelaksanaan RSBI di Indonesia. 



"Kami sudah mengkaji hasil evaluasi RSBI. Hasilnya luar biasa memprihatinkan. Jika ini diteruskan dan Kemdiknas tetap tak punya telinga, akan terjadi pendangkalan mutu pendidikan. Sebab, saat ini pendidikan di sekolah mengalami kegagalan didaktik dan ini sangat berbahaya bagi bangsa ini ke depan. Jadi RSBI harus dihentikan jika tidak ingin bangsa ini ketinggalan dengan bangsa-bangsa lain," pungkas Satria.
