BulletProof Film

BulletProof Film is a producer of award-winning documentaries, fiction and music films as well as commercial spots and corporate videos.  


Based in Chicago and founded in 1995 by Columbia College Film School Alumni, Ilko Davidov and Carmine Cervi, BulletProof Film has produced and edited documentaries such as Sacred Sounds, About Face, Children in Exile, The Story of Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics, and William S. Burroughs: A Man Within, of which The New York Times’ Stephen Holden wrote: “there is not a word or image wasted in this documentary. It is a kind of genealogy of hip. The film tries to humanize an author whom it is too easy to view as an avenging nihilist, a black hole of icy misanthropic contempt.”


BulletProof Film's work has been distributed theatrically world-wide, and has aired on PBS,

History Channel, LinkTV, Free Speech TV, ARTE France, Al Jazeera, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Denmark, Poland, Russia, Isreal, and The Netherlands, among others.
