ITS Campus, ITS News – Besides being famous for its historical tourism, Blitar City also has a wealth of culinary flavors. Through a cinematic approach, students of the Department of Visual Communication Design (DKV) of the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) also introduced Blitar culinary specialties through the documentary they made.
The student named Masy ‘Aril Aulia Firman Andrianto or often called Aril admitted that he made the film with the title Culinary Legend Patria starting his anxiety because many local people are not familiar with the culinary diversity of their city. “So not only enjoying the history of the city, tourists who might visit Blitar should also be able to know and enjoy the culinary arts,” he said.
The typical Blitar cuisine featured in this film includes ice drop, es pleret, dawet serabi, iwak kali, tofu seasoning lawu, and wajik kletik. Each duration of the plot in this film is formulated to represent the visualization of each type of culinary. Starting from the characteristics of each culinary to the way of production. “Every culinary that is displayed also has a philosophy that is full of meaning,” he said.
The film that he used as a result of his Final Project (TA) lecture under the guidance of lecturer Nugrahardi Ramadhani SSn MT was produced for seven months with ideas and concepts that have been designed since the beginning of 2021. Not stopping there, Aril also had time to bring his work to follow Erlangga Art Awards 2022. “Alhamdulillah, we can be well appreciated and won the National First Place for Best Documentary Film,” said the 2018 student proudly.
Aril himself acts as a producer and director as well as a drafter on this film. He also invited several high school students he assisted in Blitar to form a production house B-Roll Studio. A production house is a place for him to foster and develop the abilities of his fostered students. “Because I see they have potential in photography and cinematography, but so far the proper facilities have not been fulfilled,” he added.
Through this film, Aril hopes to play an important role in introducing Blitar’s culinary specialties not only to local people but also to all Indonesian people. This film has also been screened at the National Museum of Indonesia throughout May and June 2022.
In fact, on June 24, 2022, this film was also asked by the Mayor of Blitar to be shown at CGV Blitar Square to coincide with Bung Karno’s month. Several local governments (Pemda) were also invited to attend the screening of the film. “I am very enthusiastic considering this could be a moment to disseminate our film to outsiders,” he concluded optimistically.
