Silentia Series the horror movie production house announced that Andalusia was elected by It Project 2016 Official Selection to join Networking Asian Fantastic Films (NAFF) in South Korea. This is not the first time that an Indonesian movie was included in the festival, before we have movies like The Raid 2: Berandal (2010) and Modus Anomali (2011).
NAFF officially announced that there are around 238 participants from 23 countries this year and Andalusia was the only Indonesian movie that got elected by It Project this year. Sheltered by Bucheon International Fantastic Film (Bifan), NAFF It Project is managing a business meeting for the filmmakers with investors and co-producers to objectify their movie projects.
“We want to represent the current Indonesian horror movie” said Evanggala Rasuli the writer and director of Andalusia. Evanggala explained that there’s a friction in the way people think about Indonesian horror, like traditional folklore that is combined with urban legends. He hopes that it will be something fresh for the viewers. The ambition have became the premise base idea of creating Andalusia; a girl haunted by the suicide of her best friend and has to follow clues left by said ghost to save herself but would endanger the entire school.
Beginning in 2013 through a web-serie, the Silentia Series attempt to guess the shape of Indonesian horror movie. Every month they upload a silent short movie with varying themes of horror onto their YouTube channel. Andalusia is their first full movie project and will be released in 2017. The Silentia Series team hopes that the passage of Andalusia to NAFF would become a special moment to show every potential idea they have.
