Jasmine Dellal is a British-born film director and producer.

Early life[edit]

Jasmine Dellal is an award-winning independent film director and producer. Her feature documentaries show in cinemas, festivals and TV around the world.

Dellal grew up in Great Britain, studied at Oxford, then in the United States and still spends lots of time in South India where her grandparents lived near Arunachala mountain in Tiruvannamalai. She read Modern Languages at Oxford University (French and Spanish, Balliol College).[1] Dellal met her mentor, the iconic filmmaker Marlon Riggs[2] while doing a Masters at the University of California at Berkeley.


In the 1990s, while based in San Francisco, Dellal founded Little Dust Productions, to make documentaries and artistic films with a social conscience. She has since moved to New York and London. She is particularly recognized for her work with Roma ("Gypsy" people).[3]
