Ujung Kulon

In 1980, John Edmiston led a natural history film expedition to the remote Javanese nature reserve of Ujung Kulon. In 1988, he experienced a series of powerful involuntary trance states, and during these experiences, began a process of automatic writing. A trained hypnotherapist, he later reproduced these hypnotic states to tap deeper into the unconscious, and Ujung Kulon, the novel, is the product of those involuntary and induced states and the visions and writing that sprang from them.


A powerful psychological drama unfolds in the jungle of Ujung Kulon as Dominique, a wild-life sound-recordist, disappears without trace. Mitchell, her cameraman colleague, has been searching for her for months without success. Exhausted and feverish, he returns to London, where Villiers, Dominique’s husband, suspicious and determined to find out the truth, mounts his own search. Together the two men travel back to the reserve, their mutual distrust as thick between them as the sweltering humidity of the jungle. The dark oppressive atmosphere of the reserve begins to disturb their minds, as Mitchell, still keeping his secrets to himself, becomes more and more unhinged, subtly obstructing the progress of their search and taunting Villiers with the failure of his marriage. Villiers, sensing how the landscape may have triggered primal responses from Dominique’s delicately balanced mind, and convinced that she is still alive, continues to press further into the treacherous jungle. Deep in the heart of the rainforest, Dominique, Villiers and Mitchell are enmeshed in a dark triangle of obsession, betrayal and spiralling jealousy, their vulnerabilities constantly exposed by the raw primeval power of the equatorial wilderness.
