Aly is a New York based director and cinematographer interested in developing subversively feminist stories that entertain and provoke. Twist (2019) follows a teenager (Helena Howard) in a dark yet truthful take on the traditional coming of age story. Twist premiered at Tribeca 2019. After Her (2018), is an atmospheric sci-fi that explored the marginalization of the tokenized lost girl (Natalia Dyer), and premiered online with DUST to over 300K views in the first 48hr. It played over 20 festivals, including Sarasota, Atlanta, and Dallas. As a cinematographer, she has shot commercially for clients such as Zara, Masterclass, and Nickelodeon. She is an Easy Rig ambassador, pushing the initiative of female-forward camera gear. Aly studied Economics and Semiotics at Brown University.
