director portrait
The work of emerging filmmaker Jade Ang Jackman often blurs the boundary between fact and fiction. Jade started out in the world of documentary and journalism, covering a mix of pop culture, politics, and women’s rights for VICE, the Guardian, Huffington Post, Dazed & Confused, i-D, and Refinery29, before turning her attention to film. 
In 2018, Jade won the BFI’s Best Young Director Award for ‘Calling Home’, a project that was described as “disturbingly brilliant” by Dazed & Confused, and “showstopping” by Vogue. Jade’s ‘Future is Fluid’ film for Gucci and Chime for Change premiered at Sundance in 2019. The film examined Gen-Z and gender fluidity across locations in Cape Town, London, Singapore, Maryland, Rio De Janeiro, Canada, Mumbai, and the UAE. She is currently working on a documentary short on a performer endeavouring to become the first British Asian stuntwoman.
