Director Biography

Yuki Yoshimatsu had a very unique and diverse upbringing. She was born in December 22, 1989 in Mexico City, D.F., México. She lived there for 5 years and moved to San Pedro Garza García, Monterrey, México. There, she attended American School Foundation of Monterrey (ASFM) and graduated in 2008 with the Mexican Bachillerato & U.S. High School Diploma. Seeking a change in scenery and a different culture, she decided to go back to her roots: Japan. There, she attended the International Christian University (ICU) and graduated in 2012 with a Bachelors degree double majoring in Anthropology and Media, Communications, and Culture (MCC).

Unsatisfied with the fact that she was unable to study her passion during her university years, she decided to attend New York Film Academy (NYFA) to achieve her MFA degree in Filmmaking. She studied at both New York City campus and Los Angeles campus in order to savour each coast's unique environment.

In her work, she aims to captivate the charm and complexity of life whilst encouraging the audience to question the world around them. She tackles from basic to complex emotions or situations and twists them to create doubt and wonder. Through her work, she hopes to captivate the audience's attention and emit emotion to the characters on screen, enough that they forget that they are watching a motion picture.
