To commemorate National Poem Day which falls on April 28, Miles Films launched a video art anthology series entitled Aku, Chairil. The series, which consists of 7 episodes, was initiated by Mira Lesmana and Riri Riza as a tribute to Chairil Anwar as a big name in the world of Indonesian literature. Mira Lesmana revealed that her production house intends to make a biopic film Chairil Anwar in 2021. However, the plan had not been implemented until she finally decided to make a work in the form of a video art anthology. "Perhaps many already know, we really love Chairil Anwar.
