Biography

MARSHALL CURRY is a two-time Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker. 

His film, STREET FIGHT, follows Cory Booker’s first run for mayor of Newark, NJ and was nominated for an Oscar and an Emmy. His follow up documentary, RACING DREAMS tells the story of two boys and a girl who lives in rural America and dream of one-day racing in NASCAR. It won numerous awards, including Best Documentary Feature at the Tribeca FF, and aired on PBS and the BBC. His third film, IF A TREE FALLS: A STORY OF THE EARTH LIBERATION FRONT peels back the layers of a radical environmental group that the FBI called the number one domestic terrorist group in the United States. That film won the award for Best Documentary Editing at the Sundance FF and went on to be nominated for an Oscar.

Marshall was Executive Producer and an additional editor of MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS, a comedy rock-doc about an indie band, The National. In 2014, Marshall directed and edited Point and Shoot, a documentary about a young Baltimore native who set out on a 30,000-mile motorcycle trip through Northern Africa and the Middle East and wound up joining the rebels in Libya fighting Gaddafi. It won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the Tribeca FF and was released in theatres and aired on PBS and the BBC. 

Marshall is a graduate of Swarthmore College where he studied Comparative Religion and has been a guest lecturer at Harvard, Duke, Columbia, NYU, and other colleges.
