Emmanuel Adjei

director

Emmanuel Adjei is a Dutch-Ghanian film director and visual artist. With a background in Fine Arts, his work focuses on storytelling by transforming dramatic narratives into visual poems. Creating atmospheric worlds in both a painterly and a cinematic style, Adjei always seeks for the boundary between fiction and reality.

Emmanuel’s career has been marked by collaborations with a variety of artists and brands such as Hugo Boss, Patta, Highsnobiety, Asics and artists Mark Pritchard and Bibio with Warp Records. Most prominently is his artistic relationship with Dutch-Iranian artist Sevdaliza. His short film ‘The Formula’ (2016) and music video ‘Human’ (2016), both with Sevdaliza, received global acclaim from the likes of Billboard, the Fader and Promonews, to mention some. Their most recent project ‘Shahmaran’ premiered summer 2018, and is the result of a three-year long process. The seven-minute film is a visual cinematic and sonic journey that questions the eternal fascinations and desires of the human mind, and represents a milestone moment for both their artistic expressions.
