Ucu Agustin

Writer



A journalist, writer, and documentary filmmaker.

Educated in an Islamic boarding school, Ucu became interested in journalism after realising that there were many prostitutes from her hometown. Beginning in the print media, she moved to making documentaries after she saw a lack of opportunities for human interest pieces in newspapers. One of her first documentaries, Death in Jakarta, was produced with the help of funds from the Jakarta International Film Festival. Other documentaries include Ragat’e Anak and Konspirasi Hening. She has also written several children’s books and short stories.

Ucu has been described as “one of Indonesia’s top documentary filmmakers” and often deals with social issues in her work. Ragat’e Anak was screened at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2009.1
