The directorial debut of acclaimed Indonesian cinematographer Yadi Sugandi and the first film in a Freedom Trilogy celebrating Indonesian national history, Merah Putih (aka The Red and The White, another name for the Indonesian flag), is a sweeping historical epic that follows a band of soldiers fighting for their country's independence from the Dutch in 1947. The all-star cast is a veritable who's who of Indonesian cinema -- Lukman Sardi, Donny Alamsyah, Darius Sinathrya, and T. Rifnu Wikana -- and the film features lush cinematography of the beautiful Javanese countryside and special effects by some of Hollywood's leading technicians during the film's battle scenes.
