Guess what?: Hanung to film Sukarno’s struggle
The Jakarta Post
Noted director Hanung Bramantyo says he is now collecting material and recollections of Indonesia’s first president, Sukarno, as part of his preparations to shoot a film about the president next year.
Along with Sukarno’s daughter, Rachmawati Sukarnoputri, Hanung visited Sukarno’s gravesite in Blitar, East Java. After visiting the cemetery, Hanung also visited Sukarno’s childhood home.
“I want the young generation to be able to witness and comprehend Sukarno and his struggle for the country’s independence,” he said, as quoted by tempo.co.
Hanung plans to start shooting the movie in January of next year. The movie, which is temporarily titled The Independence of Indonesia, is slated to screen on Sukarno’s birthday on June 6.
