Pulse Films has signed Bafta winning director Amma Asante to its director roster for global representation.
Asante is the director and writer behind the critically acclaimed films A United Kingdom starring David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike, Belle with Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Felton and Mathew Goode and the forthcoming adaptation of David E. Hoffman’s The Billion Dollar Spy.
Asante recently wrapped production on her latest feature, Where Hands Touch, starring Abbie Cornish, Amandla Stenberg and Christopher Eccleston; a rites of passage story of a bi-racial teen struggling for survival in Nazi Germany.
Amma Asante commented: “I’m really delighted to be joining Pulse Films – they have consistently put out powerful and beautiful work of quality over the years, leading in the field, and I am very excited that my contributions in this area are to be nurtured under the auspices of such a supremely creative company”.
Pulse Films’ Global President of Commercials & Branded Davud Kabassioun added: “Amma is a force of nature, one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met. She already has created a seminal body of work and as genuine fans, Pulse Films are proud to be in her corner to help continue to evolve her incredible story as a modern filmmaker across multiple genres, formats and platforms.”
