Stephanie Pochet is a French Indonesian documentary filmmaker born in Honolulu in 1981.

A poetic observational series of images and sounds exploring the essence of the Japanese word ‘Yūgen’.
Meditative fragments that expose the profound and mysterious sense of “the beauty of the universe and the sad beauty of human suffering”.
During their creative process, the artists aim to use their intuition as their only guide and leave their expectations and preconceptions behind while they immerse themselves in the unknown local setting.
