London-based documentary director Irene Baqué makes films that tell human stories; real, emotional stories about underrepresented communities.
Her films explore issues around identity, gender, youth culture and social justice, combining her journalistic background with a raw, intimate and cinematic approach.
Last year she made ‘Women on the Climate Frontline’ for Guardian Labs, showing how The British Red Cross campaign, ‘It Starts With Her’, is helping women in Barishal to learn new skills, improve their lives and make their communities more resilient to disasters.
‘Noche de Travesuras’ is her most recent project, which she directed, shot and edited for Dazed. It depicts a night out with LA’s LGBTQIA+ Latinx community.
Irene comments: “I’m really excited to go a step further, bringing my skills and visuals into the commercial world. Working with Dog Eat Dog is going to further develop me as a filmmaker and a storyteller’’
Dog Eat Dog founder/EP, Harvey Ascott, comments: “When I first saw Irene’s work, it felt real, raw and beautiful, the way she crafts stories makes her work so engaging. We are really excited to have Irene join us at Dog Eat Dog. I know we can make some fantastic work together!”
Irene joins Dog Eat Dog for her first commercial representation; where recent signings include comedy director, Iain Morris, and provocative storyteller, Julian Marshall.
