Lois Lipman

Based in London for many years, Lois Lipman researched, developed, and line produced 24 CBS News 60 Minutes stories that were filmed all over the world—from India and Gaza to Paris and Saint Petersburg. Her films won numerous awards including an Emmy, Peabody, and Best Documentary of the Year from American Women in Television and Radio. She then worked on longer-format documentaries for the BBC, Channel 4 – UK and PBS, again working internationally, including the Dominican Republic, Cuba, the United States and Israel. Lois later earned her MFA in Visual Media from American University in Washington on a fellowship. Her thesis film following three boys with autism won the department Vision Award and was broadcast on PBS. Lois then returned to her home in New Mexico where she committed to making this film, one that would expose the travesty of justice suffered for decades by the New Mexican Downwinders and help them in their fight for dignity, acknowledgement, and just compensation.
