In Indonesia, bipolar means having two different personalities. We are trying to create this campaign to tell you stories about this case.
I really asking for your help to continue the task of my campaign in Indonesia. I started doing research and start recording for my album "Bipolar" in the beginning of 2014 and doors have opened to allow me to further my work with new contacts eager to tell their stories.
Indonesia is a developing country and its capital city, in Jakarta, social pressure is increasingly rampant, not a few teenagers are exposed to promiscuity, so also not a few of them have bipolar disorder due to their environment and the lifestyle they have done.
With this campaign I tried to tell about the screams of their hearts, who were affected by bipolar, so they could feel that not only were they getting social pressure but there was still a lot of attention from the closest people, and with this campaign I wanted to make people aware that bipolar is not a thing to be judged and blamed on the personality.
Yungpapski's Hip-Hop Album:
I aim to produce a Hip-Hop Album, telling several aspects of the current situation of the real Bipolar's background in Indonesia with some catchy Instrumental so the messages can be deliver to anyone that hear Yungpapski's music. I also will explore the problem that because diagnosis is rare, many people that face bipolar and other genetic diseases are lumped into this category. I will be producing an events too for its launching, in addition to distribution of the Album (free of cost) to be used to submit this story for publication.
Yungpapski's Short Film Documentary:
I aim to pick few persons and tell their stories in the form of a short (10-25 minute) documentary. My intended goal is to relay their complicated narratives. This can only be a product of discovery upon my arrival aided by my research and preconceived understanding of the situation based on my insight. Ideally, the film will impact the policies and opinions of Indonesia, but will not be packaged as a cry for help, but as a window into the strange, tragic, and unique circumstances of Bipolar's lives.
The budget that collected will be used to cover the cost of producing and publishing these stories. It will pay for our music, film production and its distribution.
