Filmmaker and Producer
Humaira Bilkis is a Dhaka-based independent filmmaker and producer. Her early forays into filmmaking are informed by a critical reading of media, culture, gender, and development issues — arising from her academic background in Mass Communication and Journalism. She graduated from the Creative Documentary program at Sri Aurobindo Center for Arts and Communication in New Delhi. Bilkis explores the complexity of human relationships through an observational approach. Her work tends to be self-reflexive; Things I Could Never Tell My Mother is her most in-depth work in this domain.
As an associate producer and director, she has worked on a wide range of projects, including with the Oscar-winning filmmaker Sharmin Obaid Chinoy and the Japan Broadcasting Corporation.
