Odalan has a great philosophical meaning that reminds us of where we came from and the balance of the universe and its contents to the ceremonies and offerings. In a Pura ceremony also means that human beings are protected from the negative influences of nature that brings people to the vanity, lust and mental deterioration of the spiritual.
I was very lucky to be able to join the ceremony with the locals at Desa Sayan, thanks to Pak Puja and Bu Nyoman for having me.

In this project, Hilda wanted to bring back the Classic Cocktails because she felt the importance of preserving the tradition truthfully and the way its been overlooked by the industry does provoke her to conceptualise it.
To communicate this idea, Metta was proposing her visual approach by highlighting Hilda's gracious yet resilient technique on crafting her drinks through the eyes of Metta’s documentary manifesto.

Oeoe was inspired from a word 'Oe' which means water spring, taken from a dialect in Kupang - the capital city of Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT). Untuk Tanah Air is a direct translation from Bahasa that implies For The Nation. And this is how they started,
Sharing an outmost curiosity on exploring Indonesia, Francisca and Metta decided to take a leap of faith to NTT – where levels of poverty in the province are relatively high compared to other parts in the country.
Apart from the fact that water becomes a major problems that affects every aspects of life in the province, we would like to become the bridge to improve and support the locals to be able to live a better life. Starting from health and education.
The output from this case study trip is a compilation of visual motions and qualitative research from the places and people that they experienced in the journey. There was no plan, the compass is the people they met in between.
Currently Oeoe is looking for people from every walk of life that are interested in exploring the potential of this project. If you are fond of Indonesia's potential and want to act on it, we would like to hear from you! Let's do something greater than ourselves. Untuk tanah air!
Never hesitate to contact us. Looking forward to talk to you soon!

One Day With Uncle Jin is a short documentary made during my second year university project as a graphic designer. I have always been passionate about people and intrigued to explore a different medium to translate my emotions.
Having no experience in filming both in direction and editing. It all just started spontaneously. I hope what moves me moves you as well

* Most people are intrigued by the mirror presence in the film. In fact on the shooting day itself, I woke up with an impromptu idea that I wanted to add a depth into the scene to engage viewer closer to Uncle Jin.
