Detroit Free Press Photo and Video Director Kathy Kieliszewski is a four-time National Emmy Award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker. She was also part of the team that won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Journalism for a series of multimedia stories that examined the difficulties and unintended consequences of fulfilling President Trump's pledge to construct a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico. Her most recent films include “12th and Clairmount,” a full-length documentary that looks back at the Detroit riot of 1967, and the feature-length documentary “The Wall,” an outgrowth of the Pulitzer Prize-winning multimedia story. Kathy co-founded the Freep Film Festival, a documentary film festival in Detroit, where she serves as the festival's artistic director. She also oversees the video and photographic efforts of a staff of 12 photographers and editors at the Free Press. Before joining the Free Press as an editor, Kathy spent 10 years as a photojournalist.
