Laskar Pelangi Movie

Written by eastern writer on Friday, September 26, 2008

Laskar Pelangi, a best-selling Indonesian novel written by Andrea Hirata in 2005 now has been adapted to movie with the same title "Laskar Pelangi". Laskar Pelangi based on the writer's own experiences, about an inspiring teacher and her 10 students in the poverty-stricken Kampung Gantong in Belitong. The poor condition of their school building does not dampen their high spirits and hopes for a better future.

It took 40 days of filming on Belitong Island, Bangka-Belitung province, involving 12 local actors, and reportedly cost Rp 8 Billion. With all the efforts of transforming Laskar Pelangi (Rainbow Warrior) into a moving picture, will it satisfy readers' imaginations?

Andrea entrusted the filming of the story to respected figures in the film industry, Mira Lesmana and Riri Reza, as producer and film director, respectively. Mira have made a record at the Indonesian box office with teen flick Ada Apa Dengan Cinta and children's adventure movie Petualangan Sherina.

Laskar Pelangi has just been released in cinemas on September 25th 2008.
