Souki Mehdaoui is an intrepidly honest and caring filmmaker based in Brooklyn. After a colorful upbringing in Morocco, France, and 14 American cities, her visual work is grounded in cross-cultural anthropology, journalism, psychology, and sustainability.
Souki can juggle any aspect of the production process as a one woman band, but is best known for her handheld shooting style and playful editing. Her passion is in working with musicians (a few Grammy award winners), when subjects forget she's there, and problem solving for projects off-the-beaten-path. She has worked for Refinery29, Mason Jar Music, Nomadique, Found Sound Nation, Lonely Leap, TED, Pfizer, Tylenol, Bang On a Can, HUMAN, several Emmy award winning documentary directors, and the Oscar nominated team behind The Square.
From national campaigns to experimental art, Souki explores film as an entry-point into empathy, wisdom, and ecological storytelling.
She is currently open to taking new projects internationally. For conversations and commissions, you can reach her at email@example.com.
