Set against a historically authentic backdrop of Indonesia's struggle for independence in 1947, during the Van Mook offensive into the heart of republican territory in Central Java, Darah Garuda is a story about young Indonesian cadets who bond together despite their differences in religion, ethnicity, class and culture, to become guerrilla fighters for Indonesia's independence.
Darah Garuda gathered a topflight team of special effects and technical experts with experience in Hollywood films, including the British special effects guru Adam Howard (Saving Private Ryan, Blackhawk Down), stunt supervisor Rocky McDonald (Mission Impossible 2, The Quiet American), make-up and visual effects artist Rob Trenton (The Dark Knight), and weaponry expert consultant John Bowring (The Thin Red Line, X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
An epic historical war movie, this film was directed by Connor Allyn and Yadi Sugandi, Indonesia's most celebrated cinematographer (Director of Photography for Laskar Pelangi and The Photograph).
