HBO documented his efforts in Pakistan in “Saving Face,” a short film that was awarded the 2012 Academy Award for best short documentary. ”Saving Face” shares the stories of women victimized by brutal acid attacks as Dr. Jawad works to reconstruct and heal these victims. The documentary has subsequently been nominated for five Emmy Awards, which will be announced Sep 29th at ceremonies in New York City.
