Curate Films has announced the signing of Sam Hobkinson for representation.
Hobkinson is a director with years of experience engaging viewers in provocative and broad ranging stories. From documentary to television drama, Sam has offered suspense and insight for British and American audiences alike. He has been the recipient of the coveted ‘Grierson' British Documentary Award twice; first in 2007 for 'Who Cares About Art' and second in 2012 for 'The Love of Books: A Sarajevo Story'.
His subjects include the enigmatic art world to the complex devastation of war-torn countries. In 2017 he worked alongside Damien Hirst to capture the film 'Treasures' from the Wreck of the Unbelievable, following it with his 2018 documentary 'The Kleptocrats', a dazzling look into an embezzlement and corruption scheme known as the world’s biggest white-collar heist.
Most recently, Sam has released the limited docu-series 'Fear City: New York vs The Mafia' on Netflix. With hints of Francis Ford Coppola’s, 'The Conversation', Sam recreated the tense, exhilarating dirty glamour of 1980s New York.
