Sojourn Filmworks is an independent documentary production company based in Brooklyn, New York.  Formed by Robert C. Winn, it is dedicated to the power of documentary media to broaden understanding of our increasingly diverse community. 

Robert focuses on documentaries that explore issues of social justice, immigration, and cultural dislocation.  Recent public television feature projects as producer/director include Grassroots Rising (2005) about labor issues and the Asian Pacific Islander community in Los Angeles, Saigon, USA (2003) about the development of the Vietnamese American community 25 years after the fall of Saigon; and Childhood in Translation (work in progress) about immigrant children who are the linguistic and  cultural brokers for their families.  His projects have been supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Rockefeller Foundation,  the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the California Council for the Humanities, the National Asian American Telecommunications Association, the Independent Television Service and the Pacific Pioneer Fund.
