The multi-disciplinary work of Floria Sigismondi work spans film, music video, commercials, photography and art. Her audacious music-video imagery and trademark cinematic style have made her one of the most acclaimed directors in the genre’s history with iconic work for Rihanna, David Bowie, Dua Lipa, Justin Timberlake and Sigur Ros, to name a few. In commercials, Floria has re-imagined such brands as Samsung, Absolut, Equinox and MAC cosmetics. Multiple collaborations with Gucci include a co-directed film with Creative Director Alessandro Michele to celebrate the house’s centenary, 2020’s Gucci Bloom campaign starring Angelica Huston and Florence Welch and an award-winning documentary on the legendary filmmaker, Kenneth Anger. Floria is currently in post for her third feature film, The Silence of Mercy, and has directed critically-acclaimed episodes for The Handmaid’s Tale among other television projects. She recently released her third published monograph, Eat the Sun, a collection of photographs featuring music and Hollywood luminaries such as Nicole Kidman, Daniel Kaluuya, Tilda Swinton and Timotheé Chalamet.
