RSA AND BLACK DOG SIGN SOMAYEH
7 September 2021

RSA and Black Dog Films have signed Iranian-born filmmaker Somayeh for UK and EU representation.

Working as a director, editor, and stills photographer, Somayeh has an intrinsic understanding of all aspects of the filmmaking process. Her work often deals with themes of situating personal heritage within a global context, and her poetic visuals lend themselves to both raw and delicate subject matter in equal measure.


This layered approach has led to widespread critical acclaim, and recent film 'I See You' was shortlisted for Best Experimental Film at the Berlin Fashion Festival in 2021. The evocative piece is inspired by models speaking out about sexual harassment within the industry, and typifies Somayeh's ability to render tricky subject matter in visually appealing ways.


Somayeh is the total package, melding the best elements of filmmaking to make compelling and emotive work.

 ”

The director has also made a name for herself across the commercial industry with a diverse array of projects for major brands - something RSA and Black Dog are keen to foster with their creative support.

Mia Powell, new business director at RSA, explains: "An intuitive storyteller with an eye for strong visuals, and a background in editing; Somayeh is the total package, melding the best elements of filmmaking to make compelling and emotive work with a focus on themes around identity. We can't wait to collaborate with her across commercials, music videos, and short form content, a fantastic new addition to our roster."
