The variety of films distributed in Indonesia are homogenous, which highly impacts the dissemination of knowledge generated by the films. Since the information exposed to the public derived from one single source, it is highly potential to politicize the dissemination of the society?s collective knowledge. For example, the arrangement on film circulation. Indonesian Censorship Institute does not only authorized the quantity of the film circulated in the country but also regulates the quality of the films. Films that contain any ideological deviation, moral standards digression, and disobedience of the State will surely be banned. Inevitably, the flow of capital for filmmaking shall follow the State?s standard of circulation. The flourishment of community-based independent film screenings network in Indonesia simultaneously provides alternative information to society. Such knowledge?regarded by the State as the Other?is important since the greater scope of knowledge is inaccessible, not to mention limited by the State. The film communities dedicate the screenings as a space for the audience to explore various kind of films with various kinds of knowledge. The researcher conducted an experiment in combining the situation of the society constrained by the State with the adaptation of 3-D filmmaking. The adaptation manifested in the utilization of layered-narrative as an effort to illustrate the role of information obtained from various sources. The experiment is expected to encourage the audience to dig the information as if they were putting the pieces of the film scenes into a puzzle. Key words: Film Distribution Monopoly, Film Form Monopoly, Adaptation on 3-D Technology
