Director/Producer/Director of Photography
Allie Humenuk is an award-winning filmmaker and Emmy nominated cinematographer whose films have been broadcast nationally and internationally and screened at film festivals, museums and schools. Her feature documentary, “Shadow of the House,” about the photographer Abelardo Morell was heralded as “one of the best films ever made on a artist and the artistic process” by Bo Smith, former curator of the film program at the MFA Boston. She was nominated for an Emmy for her camera work on the PBS series “Design Squad.”
For over 15 years Allie was the Executive Producer at Vida Health Communications where she created media about public health issues. She has taught film and video production at Harvard University and currently teaches Massachusetts College of Art. Allie freelances as a Director, Cinematographer and Editor.
Her most recent film is THE GUYS NEXT DOOR, a feature documentary. The film is an intimate portrait of Erik and his husband Sandro and their daughters Eleonora and Rachel Maria. Both girls were birthed by Erik's college friend Rachel with donor eggs. Rachel has three biological children of her own. Spanning over three years, this lyrical documentary tackles some of the most pertinent issues of our time: gay marriage and parenting, surrogacy as a path to having children, and the extension and redefinition of what it means to be “an American family.”
