October 10, 2023
Since its debut in September, the documentary Kelce on Amazon Prime Video, about Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, has become the most watched documentary ever in the U.S. on the streaming platform.
The film is the latest triumph for the filmmaking couple Sheena M. Joyce '98 and Don Argott, who were profiled in The Philadelphia Citizen by Jessica Blatt Press.
"Bryn Mawr helped me to think more critically, and to not fear amplifying my voice. I became more authentically myself, more comfortable in my own skin, through my time at Bryn Mawr." -- Sheena M. Joyce '98
In addition to Kelce, Joyce and Argott, whose production company is called 9.14 Pictures, most recently produced Thick Skin, a four-part documentary for AMC aimed at destigmatizing obesity. Their filmography includes The Art Of The Steal, which was named by Roger Ebert as one of the best documentaries of 2010, Last Days Here, which won awards at many festivals, including the IDFA PLAY Award for Best Music Documentary at the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, and Believer, which won the Best Documentary Award at the Hollywood Film awards as well as Best Documentary at the GLAAD Media Awards.
Other recent projects include The Bond, a four-part documentary series about unique relationships between people and animals for Discovery +, and Spector, a Showtime docuseries about the legendary music producer and accused murderer, currently on Showtime.
No matter what the project, Joyce says she regularly draws on her Bryn Mawr experience and education.
"I will always be grateful for my Bryn Mawr education, as I regularly feel its impact on my work. Bryn Mawr helped me to think more critically, and to not fear amplifying my voice. I became more authentically myself, more comfortable in my own skin, through my time at Bryn Mawr. It has enabled me to move in circles I otherwise would have found inaccessible, which is particularly useful as a documentary filmmaker."
