Aly is a New York based director and cinematographer interested in creating female-centric stories that push and transcend cultural boundaries. Twist is Aly’s third short film, all of which have starred strong female protagonists making their own way. (Gina Piersanti, Natalia Dyer, Helena Howard)  Her last short, After Her (2018), was an atmospheric sci-fi that explored the marginalization of the token “lost girl” and played over 20 festivals. As a cinematographer, she has shot commercially for clients such as Zara, Reebok, Citibank, Converse, Johnnie Walker, Nike, Nickelodeon, Google, iD, and Vice. She is an Easy Rig ambassador, pushing the initiative of female-forward camera gear to help make the industry more inclusive. She is a member of Cinematographers XX, Cinefemme and NYWIFT.
