About

Sur is a character from Photocopier, a 2021 Indonesian crime mystery drama film, co-written and directed by Wregas Bhanuteja in his feature-length directorial debut.


Background

Sur (Shenina Cinnamon), who lost her scholarship after her drunk selfie circulated online, for which she was accused of bringing disgrace to her faculty. However, Sur had no recollection of the previous night’s events, as she blacked out when attending a college party.


Sur is a shy computer science student from a strict Muslim family. During her free time, the freshman volunteers as a web designer for her university’s theatre company, the Mata Hari. To celebrate their latest award-winning production, Sur is invited by the group’s rich playwright, Rama (Giulio Parengkuan), to a party at his house.


Naturally, her conservative parents aren’t keen on Sur going to a party with young liberal thespians, and she only obtains their permission by promising to follow Muslim values and avoid alcohol. But once there, she succumbs to peer pressure to indulge in a couple of drinks, and wakes the following day with barely any memory of what happened.


Things take a turn for the worse when Sur realises that drunk selfies from the previous night have been uploaded to her social media – compromising photos that lead to not only her enraged father disowning her, but the revocation of her much-needed financial aid by the college’s scholarship review panel.


Plot


Sur loses her scholarship after her drunk selfie circulated online. However, Sur has no recollection of the night's events, as she blacks out when attending a college party. Then, Sur seeks for help from her childhood friend, Amin, who also works and lives at the campus as a photocopier, to find out what actually happened that night.
