J. Productions (Registered as JDOT Films (OPC) PVT LTD) is the brain child of Jyotsna Khatry, a well-established Indian documentary film maker who has over 9 years of experience in producing films for the development sector. She has a history of working for development agencies, both Indian as well as international, like UN, UNDP, UNICEF, UNWOMEN, AARP media, Canada World Youth, Government Agencies, NGOs and the corporate sector.
Our team has a cumulative experience of more than 20 years working for communications teams of various development agencies as well as commercial entities. We are a fully integrated production team, with a growing portfolio, and a multi-pronged approach to storytelling, which we believe is central to every positive story that is emanating from social development projects done by organisations like UNDP, UNICEF, Save The Children, USAID etc.
Jyotsna started her journey as an independent filmmaker with an investigative documentary on patterns of child trafficking for domestic servitude titled ‘Sons and Daughters’ in 2011. The documentary focused on survivors of child trafficking from the states of Jharkhand and West Bengal. Working with children for the film over a period of almost two years helped Jyotsna experience the vulnerability, yet the extra-ordinary resilience of children and adolescents to face difficulties and embrace change. This motivated her to work majorly on children and women related stories.
Jyotsna is empaneled with UNICEF and UNDP for almost 5 years now. Her other projects have been for UN, UN Women, UNEP, CUNPK, UNFPA, UNAIDS, AARP (USA), Canada World Youth and Rotary International, travelling extensively to remote project sites across the country.
