India Sleem signs to Black Dog Films UK
Director and photographer India Sleem has signed to Black Dog Films in London for UK representation.
Sleem’s work, including filmed content for Nike and The Gap, has been featured in Dazed, Vogue, It’s Nice That, Instagram, Nowness, Fader, and Urban Outfitters. Her most recent project, The Game - a short film on communities around the New York basketball scene - premiered via It’s Nice That.
Born and raised in Manchester, but currently based in New York, India Sleem was introduced to filmmaking at a young age. As the daughter of a DJ, India obsessively watched the music videos of Janet Jackson, Grace Jones, and M.I.A. Her work is human-centric and highly emotive, focusing on human relations, colour, composition, and culture - as seen in her All For I mini-documentary series for Nike.
“India is a great addition to our young roster of filmmakers and photographers,” says Martin Roker, Head of Black Dog in London, “She’s a really exciting talent, and we’re all looking forward to collaborating on projects through Black Dog."
