Stills from "Ivan" (2023) | Dir. Jazz Pitcairn



Writer & Director

Jazz Pitcairn is an award-winning writer, director, and producer from the Cayman Islands, best known for writing on HBO’s Emmy-winning series, A BLACK LADY SKETCH SHOW (ABLSS).

At 17, Jazz was nominated for Best Local Filmmaker at the Cayman International Film Festival and continued her career at NYU Tisch. Thereafter, Jazz worked for several major studios like A24, HBO, and Apple TV+ before landing as a Writer on ABLSS, making her the first Caymanian to write for an American network television show at just 23 years old.

After wrapping ABLSS, Jazz revealed herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, a short film titled "Ivan." It stars award-winning actress Sasha Lane ("American Honey") and is inspired by Jazz's personal devastating experience during Hurricane Ivan in 2004.

Jazz is most passionate about telling introspective character-driven narratives that shine a light on Afro-Caribbean stories.
