Since the release of the official trailer for Jagat Arwah, the latest film produced by Visinema Pictures has been steadily impressing that the story raised is closely related to the beliefs that are believed by the public.
Loaded with occult and mystical things, such as “smart people”, kuntilanak, genderuwo and other ghosts, through this film, the audience is invited to explore other dimensions that may be foreign, but at the same time familiar.
Through the video Jagat Arwah – Behind The Story which aired on the Visinema Pictures YouTube channel, Ari Irham, the actor of Raga, told how this work started. Indonesian culture, which is full of occult and mystical things, makes people familiar with local legends.
“Sedulur papat limo pancer” from Javanese culture is one of them. The concept where every birth is accompanied by four other accompanying brothers, spirits who will perfect every human being. Based on that, the Jagat Spirits team wanted to explore how the human world and the spirit world coexist.
The occult stories related to knowledge passed down from generation to generation are of course closely related to supernatural beings. What makes the Spirit Universe different is that the characters of supernatural beings that are already known to the public are displayed with modifications. Each character is given the freedom to explore, but still respect the original figure.
