Merantau (2009)
« on: 14/09/2008 12:47 »
Introduction
"Merantau" is an Indonesian action drama feature due for release April 2009. Written and directed by award winning filmmaker Gareth Evans the film showcases Silat Harimau (with choreography from renowned master Edwel Datuk Rajo Gampo Alam and Team Silat Harimau). "Merantau" will also introduce to the world Indonesia's rising action star and Silat Tiga Berantai expert, Iko Uwais.

For the past 5 months Iko has been trained in Silat Harimau to perform the complex choreography designed for the film to be shot on location in both West Sumatra and Jakarta.

Production begins November 2008.

Synopsis:
In Minangkabau, West Sumatera, Yuda a skilled practitioner of Silat Harimau is in the final preparations to begin his “Merantau” a century’s old rites-of-passage to be carried out by the community’s young men that will see him leave the comforts of his idyllic farming village and make a name for himself in the bustling city of Jakarta.

After a series of setbacks leave Yuda homeless and uncertain about his new future, a chance encounter results in him defending the orphaned Astri from becoming the latest victim of a European human trafficking ring led by the wildly psychotic, Ratger and his right-hand man Luc.

With Ratger injured in the melee and seeking both his “merchandise” and bloody retribution, Yuda’s introduction to this bustling city is a baptism of fire as he is forced to go on the run with Astri and her younger brother Adit as all the pimps and gangsters that inhabit the night hound the streets chasing their every step. With escape seemingly beyond their grasp, Yuda has no choice but to face his attackers in an adrenaline charged, jaw-dropping finale.

I'm not sure I fully understand the question. If by join you mean becoming a part of the production as an artist, unfortunately we've already filled the main roles in the film and will be announcing the cast list in early October.

As a side-note, we have just confirmed that we will be producing 12 weekly video blogs on the whole production process covering the projects inception, the training of its lead and principal photography with interviews from cast and crew throughout. This will appear on the official website along with our YouTube, Vimeo Channels, Myspace page among others. Further details will be announced shortly.

Wow, I'm really excited about this movie.  [top]
Can't wait to see Uko Uwais (3 Berantai), Pak Yayan Ruhian (Silek Harimau) and all other Silat practitioners star in the big screen.
I hope production goes well and the movie is well received. Hope it showcases Silat techniques.
I remember reading about the movie Shaolin Temple(Jet Li's first movie).
Initially the producers hired actors to play the roles. They thought that they could teach the actors Wushu for the movie. Later they changed their mind and hired Wushu athletes intead and teach them acting. That turned out great. Now Shaolin Temple is a classic.

Regards,
Faiz

Nice & cool enuf...

But i wish, if the techniques which showed within the movie can explore the true pencak silat. not influenced by imported techniques.

Thanks for all your kind words about the project, we really appreciate the support we're getting.

To answer a few questions/comments, regarding the fighting techniques we aimed to show Pencak Silat in as true a form as possible while still maintaining a realism to the fight sequences. So while Iko Uwais will fight entirely using Silat Harimau most of his opponents rely on a more brawling, streetfight style which serves to highlight Harimau much more.

There are moments also in the film where we feature a jurus with the kerambik, a duel with a master, and a one-on-one fight with two equally skilled Harimau fighters to showcase silat in a more pure form. But we didn't want to just show silat vs. silat, we also wanted to incorporate different fighting styles for Yuda to overcome.

The documentary hasn't been released as yet and as we do not own the rights we can't release any clips from it online. Once it is made available however, we will let you know.

wow.. to tell you the truth, I'm really excited to know that there will be a movie about pure silat... It's about time that silat is internationally known as a beautiful yet deadly art of self defense from Indonesia.
Well it's just my opinion mate, but I think it would be great if there are scenes where the fight is done in a very narrow room, in an open space, and on the ground (grappling n locking maybe)... I just want to show the audience that silat is very very adaptable to every kind of situation and places... just my 2 cents mate :)
Anyway, I wish you a very successful Silat movie, and I hope that your effort will inspire others (especially fellow Indonesians) to wake up and promote this gorgeous national treasure.

Apologies for taking so long to reply here, we're still deep in production on the film, we've been updating our website and video channels with production blogs and the film is expected to be released in cinemas throughout Indonesia April 30th.

For  moemoe_zr:
You'll be glad to know that we do indeed show Pencak Silat's low-ground level fighting techniques with a 1min 30s fight sequence that takes place in its entirety inside of an elevator - it's a scene that is sure to be one of many highlights in a film that will hopefully be one of many that start to explore the fascinating history, culture and beauty of Indonesia's martial art.
