Priya Ahluwalia premieres her new short film ‘Beloved’, a multifaceted display of Black and Brown love stories, marking her first, as a director with the Ridley Scott Creative Group’s Black Dog Films.
"Film has become one of my favourite mediums to showcase stories from my community, as well as my collections. I love how film has the power to connect to its audiences, transport them and drive emotional engagement", says creative director, Priya Ahluwalia. "Beloved' is "an ode to the visualisation of love stories we love to watch in Bollywood and Nollywood cinema but rarely get to enjoy in Western media". The film ‘Beloved’, was developed and produced with Black Dog Films and premiered at the White City branch at Soho House with a day festival.
Martin Roker, Global Head of Black Dog, of the Ridley Scott Creative Group comments “The world that Priya has constructed through fashion and culture only brings the ‘Beloved’ film to the forefront. This is Priya’s first film with BD and I’m delighted that Priya has signed to the UK and US to RSCG’s black dog films for further projects. With Priya being a multi-disciplined creative, not only is Priya a perfect fit for Black Dog but this only strengthens both brands going forward.”
