Miss or Mrs? (English Subtitle)
— June 22, 2011
Miss. Mrs.? is the third documentary in the At Stake documentary series. In Jakarta, women have easy access to glossy magazines, designer labels-or the latest cosmetics. But finding a non-judgmental ob/gyn is not easy. This film follows the quest of single and unmarried women in getting the right treatment for their reproductive health. Most get unfriendly gestures from the hospital nurses and doctors. When an unmarried woman wants to find the right contraception, she gets disapproval from nurses and doctors and is lectured on morality instead. The film questions the importance of health versus moral judgment.

Coconut Trees that Bear Jerry Cans (English Subtitle)
Papuan Voices [Merauke]
— December 20, 2011
The Malind tribe in Merauke is proud of its ecological traditions - each clan in the tribe is responsible for protecting a natural element. The Moiwend clan is responsible for the coconut trees and fruit. However, in recent times Malind youth have started using coconuts to make alcohol. The home-made drinks – which are much cheaper to buy than beer and spirits - have added to the town's problems. Now, some Malind elders are calling for the reinstatement of customary laws that would punish those who make use of coconuts in this way in order to save their tradition and their community.
