Tipping Point PA
A documentary about the fight for democracy.
Mary Haverstick • filmmaker
Tipping Point PA is Mary's fifth feature film, placing her in the company of very few other women to have ever tackled five. Mary directed Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden in her indie drama HOME (2009) and worked with Liam Neeson on THE LAST HORSEMEN OF NEW YORK (2018). But she's now tackling a topic in her backyard, the political struggle in the Tipping Point state that is determining the fate of democracy and the nation.
In addition to directing, Mary is an accomplished cinematographer, editor and writer, and is finishing up a memoir about stumbling onto secrets from the Cold War.
