Her works include the music video Torn (Natalie Imbruglia, 1998), the short film Kitchen Sink (1989) and the feature films Jesus' Son (1999) starring Billy Crudup and Crush (1992) starring Marcia Gay Harden.

Alison Maclean was born in Ottawa, Canada, in 1958, to New Zealand-born parents.

After several years developing projects she got her second feature, Jesus' Son (1999), starring Billy Crudup and Samantha Morton (with Holly Hunter, Dennis Hopper, Denis Leary and Jack Black in supporting roles). The film is based on the short stories by cult US writer Denis Johnson.
