Emmanuel Adjei

director

With a primary interest in storytelling, Emmanuel’s work deals with human narratives, captured by his unique visual language. Creating atmospheric worlds in both a painterly and cinematic style, Emmanuel always seeks to challenge the boundaries between fiction and reality.

The film maker and visual graduated in Fine Arts (BA) at the Utrecht School of Arts, and with a talent scholarship from the Prins Bernhard Culture Fund he commenced with a BA Audiovisual Arts at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. During this time he discovered his passion for making short films and video installations, often in collaboration with artist and writer Marleen Özgür.

In 2013 and 2014 Emmanuel got honoured with a ‘Young Talent’ grant from the Mondriaan’ fund to develop his artistic practice. In 2016 he received acclaim for his short film ‘The Formula’, and his music video ‘Human’ for Iranian-Dutch artist Sevdaliza was praised by the likes of Billboard, Vogue, The Fader, Nowness, Promo News and V Magazine.

Off to a flying start, Emmanuel continued to collaborate with a variety of artists and brands such as Hugo Boss, Patta, High Snobiety and Asics. His most recent work is the mind-bending music video for ‘Give It Your Choir’ by artists Mark Pritchard and Bibio with Warp Records.
