Raven Jackson, writer and director of A24’s All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt, has joined the Pulse Films’ global commercial and music video roster.

Jackson is a filmmaker, poet, and photographer from Tennessee. Her work often explores landscapes of indefinable experiences and emotions, as well as our relationship to nature.

Recently nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature and a Gotham Award for Breakthrough Director, Raven’s debut narrative film, All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt, made in partnership with Maria Altamirano, PASTEL, and A24, world-premiered in the US Dramatic Competition at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, and was named one of the top ten movies of the year by The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and RogerEbert.com. The film has screened at the New York Film Festival, San Sebastián International Film Festival, BFI London, AFI Fest, and more.

Jackson is a Cave Canem fellow and holds MFAs from New York University’s Graduate Film Program and the New School’s Writing Program.

Raven Jackson, Director, says, “My passion is in guiding a vision from beginning to end, and ultimately leaving audiences with a feeling or emotion that lingers. I’m excited to focus this interest on short form filmmaking.”

Casey Engelhardt, Senior Executive Producer, comments, “The thread of human truth we often seek in advertising is exactly what Raven so organically and tactfully weaves on camera. Her longform work is a clear indication of the brilliance she offers traditional spot work and freeform branded endeavours.”
