Who was David Koff?

David Richard Koff was an award-winning maker of documentary films, social activist, writer, researcher, and editor. His interest in social and economic justice has shaped a career largely spent exploring human rights, colonialism, resistance movements, racism, labor unions, and the oppression and exploitation of undocumented workers in America. However, he veered from political concerns long enough to write and co-produce the film, People of the Wind for which, in 1976, he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Feature Documentary.
