Marcia RockMarcia Rock, ’67, is a documentary filmmaker and professor and Director of News and Documentary at NYU Journalism. Her documentaries cover international dilemmas, women’s issues and personal perspectives. She recently completed three films on veteran issues and two films with Shaker classmate Patricia Lee Stotter. “Soldiers Period” depicts myths about PMS; “Service: When Women Come Marching Home” follows women transitioning from active duty to civilian life and won a New York Emmy Award; and “Warriors Return” focuses on Navajo veterans. She has covered Irish-American and northern-Irish history, producing the award-winning “Daughters of the Troubles: Belfast Stories” (1997) and “McSorley’s New York,” which won a New York Emmy Award. Her personal documentary “Dancing with My Father” reflects on how adult love is shaped by what a child learns at home. A seminal moment in her career was working with Shaker graduate Marlene Sanders on the book “Waiting for Primetime: The Women of Television News.” A pioneer for women in broadcast journalism, Sanders was the first woman to anchor a newscast and was friend and mentor to Marcia.
