new—land welcomes Naghmeh Pour to new talent roster
Copenhagen-based director joins for representation across music videos, commercials and branded content in Scandinavia, the UK and Amsterdam.
Drawing from inspirations like Mohsen Makhmalbaf and Abbas Kiarostami, Naghmeh Pour’s work is animated by metaphor and symbolic imagery, and driven by a burning desire to evoke emotion and encourage reflection.
Pour was born in Iran and fled the country as a child, living in Turkey for some time before spending her youth in provincial Denmark.
She began her career as a Director’s Assistant at new—land Copenhagen, learning from some of the industry’s foremost directors. Her directorial debut, Iran-e Man, a visual poem woven from the richness of Iran made in collaboration with Iranian-Italian brand PAIRI DAEZA, was a runaway success, winning multiple awards at this year’s Cannes Lions, YDA, D&AD, True Awards and shots.
“It comes with such joy to add Naghmeh Pour to our roster. Naghmeh has shown such bravery with her first film (Iran-e Man) and I can’t wait to be a part of her journey going forward - she is truly blooming as a talented young female director.” said Sara Samsøe, EP & Head of Production, new—land Copenhagen.
