The man who remained unseen – The Dutch priest behind the Indonesian Kudeta

(English subtitles)
Dutch documentary about the role of the Dutch Jesuit priest Joop Beek in the aftermath of the 1965 coup in Indonesia and the establishment of the ‘Orde Baru’ regime of general Suharto.

 

Lembaga penyiaran KRO-NRCV tak mau ketinggalan. Melalui kanal dua (NPO2), gabungan organisasi penyiaran Katolik dan Kristen-Protestan ini menurunkan laporan khusus pada 1 Oktober 2015. Ia menayangkan dokumenter sepanjang 50 menit berisi masa lampau maupun masa kini.

Sebagai organisasi penyiaran agama, mereka tertarik pada Pater Joop Beek, rohaniwan Katolik yang memegang peran besar pada awal Orde Baru. Waktu itu wartawan KRO, Aad van den Heuvel, datang ke Jakarta untuk melaporkan situasi di Indonesia. Ketika berangkat, dia mengantongi nama Joop Beek. Melalui Beek pulalah dia bisa mewawancarai banyak orang, termasuk Soeharto dan Presiden Sukarno.

Suatu sore, van den Heuvel bertanya benarkah Soeharto akan berpidato pada malam harinya. Beek membenarkan. Ketika ditanya apa isi pidatonya, Beek menjawab belum tahu karena pidato itu masih harus ditulisnya. Semula jawaban ini dikira gurauan belaka. Tapi ketika mendapati Soeharto benar-benar membacakan pidato yang ditulis Beek, van den Heuvel segera sadar betapa besar pengaruh Beek. Daftar pertanyaan untuk Soeharto diserahkannya kepada Beek, dan dalam wawancara Soeharto membacakan jawaban yang ditulis Beek.

Dokumenter itu merinci apa saja peran Beek. Beek menggalang demonstrasi mahasiswa menuntut pengunduran diri Sukarno. Ketika Sukarno tumbang dan Orde Baru tegak, Joop Beeklah yang memikirkan pembentukan Golongan Karya. Setelah menyusun struktur partai, ditemuinya Harry Tjan Silalahi agar mendekati Soeharto. Lahirlah Golkar, anak rohani Joop Beek.

Tak semua rohaniwan Ordo Jesuit setuju dengan langkah Beek. Salah satunya Adolf Heuken, seorang pastur asal Jerman yang juga bertugas di Jakarta. Baginya, Beek sudah terlalu dekat dengan kekuasaan; yang berdarah-darah pula! Menurut peraturan gereja Katolik, seorang pastur tak boleh berpolitik praktis. Maka, Adolf Heuken menghubungi Uskup Agung Jakarta. Ketika Beek tak mempedulikan atasannya, Heuken menulis surat ke pembesar Jesuit di Roma. Pembesar Jesuit turun tangan. Joop Beek pindah rumah dan menjauhkan diri dari orang kuat Orde Baru.

IMITATIO IGNACIO – CONFESSIONS OF A JESUIT PRIEST

(sayang belum menemukan film ini atau trailernya di kanal publik)

 

SYNOPSIS
IMITATIO IGNACIO tells the story of Joop Beek, born in a poor working class neighborhood in pre-war Amsterdam, who becomes a Jesuit priest and eventually stands at the heart of tumultuous changes in post-colonial Indonesia.

IMITATIO IGNACIO is a film about Father Beek, founder of the political movement Golkar in Indonesia, and a close associate of Suharto who transformed into a merciless, corrupt dictator. The priest served as speechwriter for Suharto and shaped OPSUS, Indonesia’s secret service. Father Beek used that organization to implement the so-called ‘Act of Free Choice’ in such a way that West New Guinea (now: West Papua) came to join the Republic of Indonesia – an event that inspires controversy to this day.

It looks at the story of the still shady coup of 1965 in Indonesia, in the year of living dangerously, which brought about the fall of President Sukarno and General Suharto’s rise to power and the hundreds of thousands of deaths that followed.
Joop Beek is a traumatized soul. Traumatized by the death of his father, when Joop was just a boy of twelve and by the solitude of his training as a novitiate with the Jesuits of Semarang, Indonesia. He is finally traumatized by the harsh circumstances of his intern- ment in various Japanese deten- tion camps on Java during WWII. His tortured body and spirit doesn’t collapse. Instead, his hardships lead to his identifica- tion with the role of aggressor in his relationships with other people, whether they are fellow priests or his students.

Joop Beek is a man who, with a sharp eye for spotting the poten- tial future leaders of Indonesia, bends and shapes his students to his will. They cherish their affection for Father Beek, ‘the bald one’, to this very day. Father Joseph Beek S.J. is above all a man of faith, who simply works ‘Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam inque hominum salutem’ – for the greater glory of God and the salvation of mankind. Who, in the traditionofSt.Ignatius,thefound- er of the Jesuit order, fiercely fights the greatest enemy of postcolonial Indonesia – and indeed of the world at large: Communism. His goal justifies all means: ‘It’s them or us’. His source of inspiration is also his weapon: the ‘Spiritual Exercises’ of Ignatius of Loyola.

In the 1970’s, after the extermina- tion – by the frenzied Indonesian masses – of hundreds of thousands of alleged commu- nists, Father Beek shifts his focus of activities. His goal becomes the reduction of the power of Islam and Islamic legislation. But Joop Beek loses that battle.

Tormented and suffering in body and soul, Joop Beek – surrounded by his faithful followers – lays his weary head down in September 1983, in his desolate home in Jakarta. Crying for mercy and for God to “let this cup pass from me” he sinks into a deep and painful coma brought on by the liver disease that has, due to his ordeals and his alcohol abuse, tortured him for years. He is taken to the Carolus Hospital in the center of Jakarta.
That’s where, on Joop Beek’s deathbed, in a piercing white light, IMITATIO IGNACIO begins.
