Metropolis is a unique and award-winning multi media project on Dutch national television. It compares remarkable stories about the daily lives of citizens from all over the world on various themes. This program has a different approach towards reporting on universal/global subjects: reports are made by local documentary film makers and video journalists.
Metropolis employs a global correspondent network of more than 50 documentary filmmakers and video journalists from across six continents. Through their eyes we learn more about different cultures and the unexpected aspects of them.
Ilja has been a contributor to Metropolis from 2011 - to present. She does the research, finds characters, produces the segments, directs and edits the stories. Her stories are filmed by Remco Bikkers.
