In general, this proposal for qualitative research briefly reviews the structure of a research proposal from the beginning (Chapter 1) to the end (Chapter 3). It starts with the achievement made by The Raid 2: Berandal at the international level, which makes it worthy to become the analytical unit, and continues with the objective of this research: starting from digging and analyzing the myth contained in this film, to looking at the emerging interpretation on the myth when viewers watch the film. After that, the first research question is answered by using Roland Barthes’ semiotic logical framework as the “Theoretical Container”, which is integrated with other thoughts such as those of Arthur Asa Berger, Darmaprawira, Mas Dian, Barker, and Mark L. Knapp (first level analysis), continued with Susanne Langer’s thought on Discursive Symbolism (second level analysis) in order to answer the second research question. As the result, in the first level of analysis, the data digging method used is literature-study, continued with in-depth interview.
Qualitative, Semiotic, Signified, Signifier, Myth, Interpretation, “Theoretical Container”, “Discursive Symbolism”, Literature Study, and In-Depth Interview
