Director • Cinematographer • Editor
Mary Haverstick is a director, writer, cinematographer and editor. She embraces all aspects of artistic and technical production and believes deeply in the power of independent cinema as one of the last vestiges of true in depth reporting and storytelling.
Mary is best known for her narrative feature films, having last directed Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden in the critically acclaimed feature film HOME. The Last Horsemen of New York is Mary's first full length documentary. Filming with a shoestring crew allowed her to go back to a first love, working directly hands on with the camera.
Mary co-founded Haverstick & Mercure, an indie film production company. The Last Horsemen of New York is her fourth feature length film at the helm.
Michele Mercure is a composer, electronic music pioneer and film producer.
