Alison Maclean

Alison Maclean has brought an original vision to screen, whether it be in personal, expressionistic films: the seminal Kiwi gothic duo of Kitchen Sink and Crush, the acclaimed junkie redemption song Jesus' Son; or in episodes of genre-leading US television series (Sex in the City, Carnivale, Homicide, The Tudors).

When I look back at the films I've done, they're very much wrapped up in certain preoccupations with my life at that time. They all have a personal genesis somewhere in them.
