Maisie Crow is a documentary film director, cinematographer and photojournalist based in Marfa, Texas. A Texas native, Crow’s current work focuses on her home state.
Crow’s 2016 Emmy award–winning documentary, "Jackson," is an intimate, first-of-its-kind look at reproductive health care through people in the Deep South who stand on both sides of the debate. Village Voice praised it as “elegant, unsettling” while New York Magazine said it “comes at a pivotal moment for reproductive rights.” Prior to "Jackson’"s broadcast premiere on Showtime, the film screened at over 40 festivals, receiving numerous awards. Crow ran a robust community screening campaign, empowering more than eighty universities and reproductive rights organizations to host screenings and community lead discussions about the film.
In 2017, Crow directed a short film for The Intercept, which won a Sigma Chi Delta award from the Society of Professional Journalists. In 2014, "The Last Clinic," a short-film and multimedia collaboration with The Atavist Magazine about Mississippi’s last abortion clinic, was nominated for a News and Documentary Emmy and named a finalist for a National Magazine Award. In 2012, her multimedia project, "Half-Lives,"won the Overseas Press Club Award and was recognized by World Press Photo, POYi and Best of Photojournalism. In 2010, her short film, "A Life Alone," received an Emmy nomination.
Maisie has taught as an adjunct professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, CUNY Graduate School of Journalism and the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies.
