This study aims to describe the symbolic meaning of cultural expression in the film "Denias, Senandung di Atas Awan". The use of methods and Semiotic techniques from Roland Barthes is considered to be able to reveal meaning especially related to the cultural expressions displayed in the film by verbal and nonverbal signs. The results of the study show that there are 4 (four) cultural expressions: a. The sign of akil baliq for man through the installation ceremony of koteka which besides as a sign of modesty also as a sign for man towards the direction of maturity; b. The separation of housing between man and woman as a sign of independence; c. The myth of suanggi is the belief of the local community in connection with a creepy figure that can change form; d. Mourning ceremony which is marked by Cut finger which is interpreted as a feeling of sadness and deep loss, and Mud bath which is interpreted as a way of purifying yourself from sin
