Hey, I'm Mary Alice!

Washington, District of Columbia

Mary Alice is a documentary filmmaker based in Washington, D.C. She is an MFA candidate in American University’s Film and Media Arts program and is passionate about creating documentary films that spark social and institutional change. A North Carolina native with a background in political science, she is attracted to political stories of rural America, the workings and corruption of government, as well as the intersection between the environment and human health. Her most recent short film explores the whimsical nature of the maker of some of the most coveted bobble head dolls in the United States, Professor Ross E. Davies. His passion for the Supreme Court of the United States led him to create these intricately detailed and valuable dolls. Bobble is currently entering distribution. After the film is shown in various film festivals, it will be housed and accessed through the United States Supreme Court Archive as well as the Rare Books Collection at Yale Law School. In each of her films, Mary Alice seeks to find levity and make complicated or heavy topics enjoyable for everyone.
