Filmmaker Isaac Julien

Director, writer and installation artist, Isaac Julien was born in London, 1960. Objectives of his work include breaking down the barriers that exist between different artistic disciplines, drawing from and commenting on film, dance, photography, music, theatre, painting and sculpture, and uniting these to construct a powerfully visual narrative. Most of his works center around themes of class, sexuality, and artistic and cultural history.
