Career Snapshot:

Whether she is producing or directing, Marilyn Ness has created a body of work that addresses complex social problems through deeply human stories, artfully told. Cameraperson, Trapped, E-Team, and 1971 were all made with this ethos in mind; each of them were intended to entertain, enrage, energize, and emotionally impact an audience.

What Else To Know

Tell Us More:

I love being on the subway and seeing every walk of life represented. Couple that with our blasé attitude — everyone is doing incredible things and no one is even remotely impressed.  That is 100% NYC!

The Rambles in Central Park. I’m not sure I always enjoy it, but it’s always beautiful!
