Reuben Hamlyn is an award-winning filmmaker whose films look through the intimate frame of individual experience to investigate power, injustice, and the impact of technology and media on identity and behavior. His last film Roger tells the story of a service app worker who attempts to bypass technological barriers to forge a relationship with her client. Roger was commissioned by the BFI and BBC Arts to open their ‘Born Digital: Raised by the Internet’ season in 2019. The film premiered at BFI Southbank and aired on BBC Four; it was noted as ‘highlight’ of the program by The Guardian and featured in Vogue before winning multiple festival awards. Previously, Reuben made ‘BROTHER!’—an experimental documentary about masculinity in pro-wrestling subcultures. The film exhibited at Copeland Gallery, London and was featured in i-D. Another Body is Reuben’s feature debut.
