Melina Matsoukas’s brand of provocation comes from a unique, inherently multicultural point of view that flips existing narratives to normalize the inclusion of women and people of color in spaces where they previously were not represented. Matsoukas made her powerful feature directorial debut with the November 2019 release of QUEEN & SLIM starring Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith, which she also produced. Matsoukas began her television career as an executive producer and frequent director of the critically acclaimed HBO series INSECURE. She went on to direct MASTER OF NONE’s Emmy-winning “Thanksgiving” episode. She has brought her singular vision to music videos for Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Solange, Rihanna, Snoop Dogg, Lady Gaga and earned her second Grammy Award for Beyoncé’s “Formation”. Melina’s recognizable visual watermark has also landed her in the director’s chair for the global campaigns of major commercial clients such as Stella McCartney and Nike.
