Result of the study conclude that creative transposition on ‘Setan Jawa’ Film which constructed based on several types of movement adapted from Roger Long (1979)’s research—there are kadhak, mukadhiphuh and kathentheng—meaning should be considered in order to represent gesture as specific nonverbal message in relation on its context.
