ij film's founder and his role in perception changing content
Known for taking up taboo subjects, Ismail Jilani's documentaries on social subjects take the issues head-on and present all the angles to the viewer. His experience of holding senior operational and management appointments in the top television channels of Pakistan and working with the top journalists, gives him an edge over other filmmakers of approaching a topic from different angles. Made for leading networks or NGOs of the country, his documentaries have been aired in prime time slots.
With his 2009 documentary on bonded labour short-listed for the prestigious 'Association for International Broadcasting' AIB Awards, Ismail Jilani's documentaries have covered difficult topics from Balochistan to water crises in Pakistan to the banking sector in the most effective manner.
