• The JAB team

    Judith Plamondon and Caroline Pailliez are two journalists who share a passion for fascinating and well-told stories. They met several years ago while working in a newspaper. Choosing to replace their pens and notepads with a camera, they now revel in telling unique, human stories to the world. Judith studied documentary film production at L’institut national de l’image et du son, while Caroline completed a storytelling Masters at Columbia University.

    Based in Montreal, JAB Productions specializes in online videos for media outlets, NGOs and companies. Our team shoots, edits and conceives mini-documentaries that delve into important stories. Their video reports are published on websites and digital platforms throughout Quebec, Canada and the United States.


  • I Survived the Razor Blade

    “Girl, do not fear the razor blade.” Hawa Annour will always remember the lyrics of the song her mother and aunts chanted when she was being cut with cold scissors in Chad. She was twelve years old and underwent a feminine genital mutilation, like half of the girls in her country do. Nine years later, she found herself halfway around the world and healing through participating in a beauty pageant.
