Mary-Jane Doherty

2017 Boston Cultural Council Artist Fellow

Mary-Jane Doherty is an associate professor at Boston University. Over several decades she has worked with her students to develop the Narrative Documentary, a reshaping of traditional single‐handed filmmaking so that technique becomes part of the story itself. After many years producing works for major corporations, Doherty began producing her own films in 2014, creating two films that follow young dancers growing up within Cuba’s world-famous ballet system. Doherty lives in the Back Bay and is currently assembling a series of short films on the Boston Children’s Chorus.
