Every form of art, such as music, dance, literature, fine arts, and acting requires appreciation from its respective audience. The artwork has developed from year to year until in the end, it creates a balanced and harmonious blend of literature, music, acting, and comedy which is packaged in the form of a film. This research examines the representation of local wisdom contained in the documentary film Aroma of Heaven. This study aims to examine the symbols or signs of Indonesian local cultural wisdom. The theory used in the film is mass communication theory, representation, local wisdom, and semiotics. The research method used in this research is descriptive qualitative with Charles Sanders Peirce’s semiotic analysis study which divides signs into three elements, namely signs, objects, and interpretants. Data collection techniques are carried out by observation, documentation, and literature study. The conclusion of this research is that local wisdom in the film Aroma of Heaven provides a positive meaning and teaches the traditional values of an area that can be represented by the audience. This film depicts the reality of various signs on an existing object. Through the documentary Aroma of Heaven, it raises the audience’s awareness that from a cup of coffee there is a closeness of traditions, historical records, and cultural diversity that become the national identity.
