Young Lebanese director Jessy Moussalem has signed to Caviar for commercial and music video representation in the UK, Amsterdam and Brussels.
Having studied at the film school at the Lebanese Academy of Arts, she graduated with a short film that also won first prize at the European Film Festival. Then, after completing several filmmaking workshops in Paris and Barcelona, Jessy returned to Beirut to create a tribute to friendship sublimated by dance. The resulting fashion film, ‘Danse à Deux Temps’ was made on a shoestring budget and had acquired a Staff Pick on Vimeo within a few hours of publication.
Her latest project is the music video for Mashrou’ Leila's Roman. Featuring one hundred women, it is an ode to the strength and grace of Arab women and their continuous fight for feminist action.
Caviar London’s Head of Music Videos + Content, Katie Dolan, says: “I have absolutely no doubt that Jessy is going to be a huge star, and I am excited and privileged to be a part of her development. Jessy has a passion for storytelling and human stories; and fiction and documentary is what she is working on next."
