Joelle Bavoux is a Master’s student for Film and Audiovisual Media at the University of Groningen (Netherlands) with a special interest in Southeast Asian film production. Currently, she is writing her Master’s thesis on Indonesian horror films and their connection to folklore and cultural beliefs, regarding urban legends and mythical ghost figures in Indonesian horror film narratives.
Her analysis focuses on the connection to popular folklore tales and their appeal to the Indonesian audience. It thereby seeks to examine if the presence of folklore in the film’s narratives can lead to a more fearful experience for the Indonesian audience.
