Sinopsis Buku The Making of Negeri Laskar Pelangi
Buku The Making of Negeri Laskar Pelangi
This book was based on one of the highest grossing film in Indonesian box office history: Laskar Pelangi (The Rainbow Troops) which specifically took a location in a small island in west part of Indonesia called Belitung Island. The film adapted from the popular same-titled novel by Andrea Hirata which based on his childhood memories in Belitung Island. Set in the 1970s, the film sensitively captures the struggles of a group of poor children to achieve their dreams to get proper education, the beauty of friendship and its ability to save humanity, against the background of what was once one of Indonesia’s richest island because of the tin mining industry. The popularity of this heartwarming film drama has impact on the improvement of economic condition of Belitung Island. This small island is now benefit from the development priority given by Indonesia central government: brand-new international airport, luxurious hotels, and new inter-zonal roads. Through my research, I found the practice of forming superficial/artificial destination identity with banal cultural basis done by the local government. The local government used the name of the film as the destination brand and invented the tagline “Negeri Laskar Pelangi” (The Land of Rainbow Troops). This image ‘selection’ of Belitung Island was done based on the ‘regional imaginary’ that was first formed by the film audiences. Tourism was something that never occurred in the history of Belitung or embedded in Belitung people culture. It was tin mining that gave subtle traces in relation to the spatial and cultural matter because of the long historical attachment. The spectrality of Laskar Pelangi film gave access the local government to choose its own ‘story’ to be presented which substantially bring in more profits. This book is higly recommended since it shows this ‘conscious manipulation image’ expresses the desirable vision which based on economic reason rather than built from the local value. The level of engagement of the local people with the story of the film varied, although they share a high sense of pride towards their island because of the popularity of the film. The locals, through chronotope process, often referred to the film story, specifically the poor economic conditions and regional development, as their past and compared it to the well economically improved current condition after the emergence of tourism.
