25th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival

ji-hlavadok-revuecdfEmerging producersInspiration Forum


director: Luke Malone
original title: Cockpit
country: Indonesia
year: 2015
running time: 4 min.


An observational documentary follows cockfighting on the Indonesian island of Bali. It creates a scathing denunciation of senseless violence against animals, fed by a betting frenzy. It does so not by depicting the fights themselves, but rather primarily through rapid cuts between gestures, movements, and facial expressions of the enthusiastic onlookers.

It’s over, the cockfight is over. While punters in the audience exchange and count their money, the injured cock still lies in the ring, unable to fly.


American director, educator, and video producer Luke Malone studied cultural anthropology at the University of Kansas. He works at EdLab, a research unit associated with Columbia University that develops new educational methods, making educational videos. In addition to education, his documentary work is also influenced by many years of travelling around the world.
