Director Biography - Mary Trunk

Mary Trunk is a filmmaker, choreographer, and multi-media artist living in Altadena, CA. Her films take seemingly simple subjects—a family’s unraveling, the choices women make as they navigate identities as mothers and artists, how dancers age— and illuminate how each radiates out to bigger questions: how do we make sense of our histories? What paths are available to us? How do we create meaning within our lives? She has been producing and directing documentaries, dance videos, experimental hybrid films, and paintings for more than 30 years. Mary is also a film, video, and screen dance Professor at Loyola Marymount University, Mt. St. Mary’s University, and Art Center College of Design. Her work can be found at,, and @marytrunk.
