“Why does God create us differently if he only wants to be worshipped in one way?” Directed by Sammaria Simanjuntak, the film cin(T)a raises these questions and more. cin(T)a tells of a love story between two characters, Cina, a spirited 18-year-old college freshman, and Annisa, a 24-year-old senior whose fame and beauty have left her lonely. But standing in between the ‘cin’ and the ‘a’ is (T), also known as Tuhan, the most unpredictable character everyone calls “God”, but in actual fact, nobody really knows who he or she is. They both love God, but they can’t love each other because they each call God by different names. With a ‘love’ story that is seen through a different ‘lens’, cin(T)a serves up a menu of various dialogues that peels apart the differences with honesty and wit.
