Maisie Crow, Director/Producer

Maisie Crow is a documentary film director/producer, cinematographer, and photographer living in West Texas. Her work has appeared in The New York TimesThe Intercept, and MTV, among many others. Her 2016 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. With a world premiere on Showtime, the Village Voice praised it as “elegant, unsettling” while New York Magazine said Jackson “comes at a pivotal moment for reproductive rights.” 

In 2014, Crow’s 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 was named a finalist for a National Magazine Award.

In addition to her documentary work, Crow 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.
