Meet I’in Purwanti: A Berkshires-based documentary filmmaker who keeps Indonesia close to her heart

As a child in Indonesia, I’in Purwanti was the ringleader of a band of pint-sized private investigators.

“My childhood was very adventurous,” Purwanti says. “I wanted to be a detective. I read a lot of detective books so I would tell my friends every Sunday, ‘hey we need to go solve a mystery!’

“And then we would go out and find things and get into trouble.”
