Shrivel documents Karavaci, a suburb of Jakarta designed to resemble European architecture, including windmills, Versailles and a Scottish castle. Panoramic views of this highly stylized residential area serve as backdrops for performances of hysteria by Indonesian TV actors, recreating iconic scenes of a globalized lifestyle.
