Writer Julie Winokur considers herself as an accidental filmmaker. Her stories have appeared in the The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times Magazine, Salon, Natural History, Audubon, Travel & Leisure, and many others.

Her passion for social advocacy led her into documentary filmmaking. Her work includes: Firestorm; Denied: The Crisis of America's Uninsured; Fast Lane to the Future, a short film documenting India?s new national expressway and its impact on the population; a one-hour film called Aging in America: The Years Ahead, along with a companion book and traveling exhibition; a short-form multimedia video, Curse of the Black Gold; and the short film The Sandwich Generation, in which Winokur and her husband, photojournalist Ed Kashi, chronicled their personal challenges caring for their two children and Winokur's aging father.
