Join us for the MERAH PUTIH Indonesian movie screening with family and friends on Sunday afternoon, April 24th, 2016. There’ll also be some Indonesian food and desserts by Indonesian home-based chef available to pre-order and enjoy.

About the movie:

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 republican territory in Central Java. 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.

Directed by Yadi Sugandi, Indonesia’s most celebrated cinematographer and Director of Photography for LASKAR PELANGI, UNDER THE TREE and THE PHOTOGRAPH, MERAH PUTIH features an all-star ensemble cast of Indonesia’s most talented young actors: Lukman Sardi (9 NAGA, GIE, LASKAR PELANGI), Doni Alamsyah (FIKSI, 9 NAGA) and Darius Sinathrya (UNGU VIOLET, NAGA BONAR JADI 2, LOVE). The film also stars Astri Nurdin and introduces London-and-Hollywood-trained actress Rahayu Saraswati.

Shot in 35-milimeter film, MERAH PUTIH gathers a topflight team of special effects and technical experts with experience in Hollywood films: British Special Effects Coordinator Adam Howarth (SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, BLACKHAWK DOWN), Stunt Coordinator Rocky McDonald (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE II), Make-Up and Visual Effects Artist Rob Trenton (BATMAN – THE DARK KNIGHT) and First Assistant Director Mark Knight (DECEMBER BOYS, BEAUTIFUL).

This movie comes with English subtitles.
