Jenise Morgan

Westfield, New Jersey, United States


Jenise Morgan fell for docs long before she became brazen enough to make them. A recent graduate of NYU's News & Documentary program, she’s produced shorts on older women and sexuality, winter surfers in New York City, and emergent churches. Her 27-minute documentary PLATFORM (2014) looks at exotic dance under the unexpected light of faith and labor politics. She most recently worked as a full-time assistant editor on the final season of the Emmy-awarding winning OUR AMERICA WITH LISA LING. She is in pre-production on a film about the rural North Carolina "town" her mother grew up in.
