Abstract

Viewing from a communication perspective, a film (cinema) is included in the mass communication media. This is because the film fulfills all the characteristics to become a medium of mass communication. One of the functions of mass media is as a cultural transmission media. Jandi La Surong (JLS) is a film by Karo filmmakers who have a mission to revive the Karo culture and tradition which is beginning to fade. This article aims to describe JLS film as a cultural transmission medium for the Karo community. The qualitative-descriptive method was chosen in this research, with data collection techniques in the form of interviews, observation, and literature. The results of the research showed that the transmission of Karo culture and tradition in the JLS film was manifested in the use of the Karo language throughout the film and the emergence of scenes that were thick with Karo culture and traditions, including Bertutur, Erpangir Ku Lau, Gundala-gundala, Ndikar, and Satur.
