BASHA DE BRUIJN SIGNS TO BIRTH
18 January 2021

Birth have signed Dutch director Basha de Bruijn for representation across the UK and France.

De Brujin has taken a hands-on approach from the very beginning of her career, skipping university in order to focus on developing her distinctive visual voice. She's been directing music promos since the age of 19, and shot her first international commercial only two years later. Needless to say, she's something of a go-getter.


With an enduring passion for storytelling and finding beauty and magic in the everyday, de Bruijn brings a cinematic sheen to every project she tackles. Her work has a dreamlike quality which reliably pulls viewers in, and her background in editing gives each piece a wonderfully controlled sense of pace.


Basha has a real view on her generation. She's very sensitive and shows a lot of empathy for her characters - meanwhile she can build a very modern and enthusiastic aesthetic that captures your mind at first sight.

Now one of the most sought-after directors in her native land, de Bruijn is eager to bring her talents to an international stage and show the UK and French markets what she's made of.

"I'm really looking forward to becoming part of the Birth family," de Bruijn says. "It is such a refreshing and extraordinary group of people with a beautiful philosophy on making film. Here's to growing together and creating new and exciting work."

Meanwhile, Birth's Yohan Ungar says: "Basha has a real view on her generation. She's very sensitive and shows a lot of empathy for her characters - meanwhile she can build a very modern and enthusiastic aesthetic that captures your mind at first sight."
