MERAH PUTIH is a film with a historically authentic backdrop of Indonesia's struggle for independence in 1947 during the Van Mook offensive in the heart of republic territory in Central Java. Directed by Yadi Sugandi, Indonesia's most celebrated cinematographer, MERAH PUTIH tells the story of a fictional band of freedom fighters who bond together as cadets to survive a massacre, fighting on as guerilla soldiers to become true children of the nation, despite their sharp conflicts and deep differences in social class, ethnicity, geographic origin, religion and personality.
