Emmanuel Adjei

director

Emmanuel Adjei is a film maker and visual artist from Amsterdam working internationally in moving image. In 2011 he graduated in Fine Art (BA) at the Utrecht School of Arts, and with a talent scholarship from the Prins Bernhard Culture Fund he commenced a BA Audiovisual Arts at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent in 2012 where he preferred to make short films and video installations in collaboration with artist and writer Marleen Özgür.

Both 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 critical acclaim for his short film ‘The Formula’ and music video ‘Human’ for Iranian-Dutch artist Sevdaliza from blogs like Billboard, Vogue, The Fader, Nowness, Promo News and V Magazine.

His clients have ranged from 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.

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