Lucas Guilkey is an independent documentary filmmaker and video journalist based in Oakland, California.

He has produced for Fusion, AJ+, KPFA, and wide variety of short, online advocacy documentaries. He is working on a feature documentary about California Families Against Solitary Confinement and the historic and unprecedented 2013 California prisoner hunger strikes against indefinite solitary confinement.
