Septiani Lukita, director and film writer script revealed that the message contained in this film was appropriate with this year's FFMI theme, "Indonesia Gemilang". The 10-minute film tells about how much Indonesian culture should be preserved in the midst of exposure to foreign culture (K-pop) in Indonesia.
Before competing in the contest, Kim Soo Ri's film had a duration of 15 minutes. Meanwhile, the FFMI committee required a film with a maximum duration of 10 minutes. Lukita admitted that this requirement was the biggest challenge for his team. As a result, he had to cut several scenes, without reducing the essence which wanted to convey.
"This is a pride for us because this is the first time we have participated in a film festival at the national level. Hopefully, this will be a good start for Route Cinema and can also trigger other students to be able to produce an inspiring film, "said Lukita (23/7).
"I hope this can be a trigger for other students to be able to produce quality films later and it can trigger students to conduct research that is developing in the community before it is applied in a film, "explained Rahadi M.Si as the supervisor. (Win)
