Stephanie Jenkins has been making award-winning historical documentaries for over a decade. A long-time staff producer with Ken Burns, she enjoys nothing more than finding emotionally-driven stories and digging deep into film archives. Most recently she produced Muhammad Ali, an eight-hour biography of the famed boxer and activist that aired on PBS in September 2021. Her work on that film earned her a FOCAL award for Best Use of Footage in a Sports Production, as well as a nomination for Footage Researcher of the Year. Her previous projects with Florentine Films include The Central Park Five (2012), Jackie Robinson (2015), East Lake Meadows: A Public Housing Story (2020). She has contributed archival research to non-fiction media such as This American Life, Radiolab, Spike Lee’s Forty Acres and a Mule Productions, and multiple independent films. She regularly consults with filmmakers about archival workflow and research, and has spoken on panels on the subject, at DOC NYC, Craft Ed Seminars, Union Docs, among others. She was a 2018-2019 Impact Partners Producing Fellow.
