Director and producer Haley Watson said: “I'm thrilled to debut Motorcycle Mary at Tribeca. Learning about Mary's groundbreaking feats, like being the first woman to race motorcycles in the U.S. and her achievements in road racing with Porsche left me amazed by her overlooked story. Working alongside a dedicated female-led team has been immensely fulfilling. From the outset, our producer, Rachel Greenwald, championed Mary's narrative. With the support of Breakwater Studios and Lewis Hamilton, our executive producer, I'm hopeful that audiences will be inspired by Mary's unwavering courage and fearless spirit.”
