Abstract
“Memories of My Body”, a Garin Nugroho’s latest film title in 2019, tells about the body’s journey, inspired from Rianto’s life as a Lengger Lanang dancer. In this film, Rianto is not as a reference, but as a model to describe simulates feminine and masculine concepts in one body on film as a simulacrum; to produce an image that is completely unrelated to reality. The purpose of this study is to show the form of hyperreality in the film “Memories of My Body”. This study used a philosophical hermeneutic approach for interpreting how hyperreality forms in the film. This study found the simulations of feminine and masculine concepts in the film. So, the result of this research is a new horizon about the concept of hyperreality. The study can be concluded that hyperreality is not only found in a film that has science fiction or virtual reality, but also, in drama films with a local culture representing a form of hyperreality.
