SAVING TIGA DARA

THOUSANDS HOURS OF WORK

The physical restoration of the film was done at L'immagine Ritrovata film laboratory in Bologna, Italy. While the digital restoration was done by PT. Render Digital Indonesia in Jakarta, Indonesia. It took 17 (seventeen) months for the restoration work to complete.

Attended by more than 1,000 anthusiastic guests, the Premier of Tiga Dara (4K) was held on August 11, 2016, at Metropole Cineplex, in Jakarta. 

Tiga Dara is the first Indonesian movie that is restored using 4K technology.

 

THE 4K RESTORATION

Most of the restoration works were done by Indonesian. Two Indonesian women were involved directly in the physical restoration works in L'immagine Ritrovata Film Laboratory; one in film physical repairs, and the other on films comparison.

Music and song are very important aspect in this movie, therefore to ensure the best possible end-result, the audio restoration were done both in Italy and in Indonesia.

The digital restoration of the film was probably the most complicated work, as it is very expensive and nobody in Indonesia has ever done 4K digital restoration before.

RE-ARRANGEMENT of the original

 

MUSIC AND SONGS FROM THE FILM

The original soundtrack of the film has been heavily damaged, and it was impossible to restore. Therefore, SA Films was working together with deMajors to produce the Re-arrangement of the Original Music and Songs of Tiga Dara. The Album has been chosen by Rolling Stones Indonesia Magazine as one of the Best Album of the Year (2016).

 

THE FIRST HIT SINGLE

The first single is Tiga Dara, released in August 2016, sung by the dinamic trio; Bonita Adi, Aprilia Apsari, and Aimee Saras. Choosing this three girls to sing the theme song, is a no brainer. Music was beautifully and masterfully rearranged by Indra Perkasa.

 
 

SECOND SINGLE IS OUT

On February 28th, 2017, SA Films and deMajors released the second single; Cita-cita. Obviously, nobody can sing it better than Monita Tahalea.
