Kate Woodsome

Senior Producer

​​Kate Woodsome is an award-winning journalist and filmmaker weaving the connection between mental health and democracy. While at The Washington Post, she won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service with colleagues covering the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, pioneered a mental health column and managed a short documentary unit. Woodsome has been honored with the Ben Bradlee Award for Courage in Journalism, an Edward R. Murrow Award for her film, PLEASE RISE, honors from the White House News Photographers Association and the National Association of Black Journalists. Her film BRING THEM HOME helped change U.S. policy and public opinion around state hostage-taking and screened at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, the Sarasota Film Festival, DC/DOX and beyond, while the DOC NYC premiere and long festival run of FIGHT OR FLIGHT has invited audiences to reframe their understanding of trauma and recovery. Now independent, she recently founded Invisible Threads to explore the ties between the health of our minds and body politic in a way that nourishes individual and collective wellbeing. Woodsome pursues this mission through writing, film and public education. Invisible Threads deepens work she has done for two decades — from reporting on an authoritarian regime in post-genocide Cambodia, the decline of democracy in Hong Kong and the 2021 insurrection.
