Mary Kate Cary is the executive producer of 41ON41, a documentary film about former President George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States. Cary conducted and compiled 41 extraordinary interviews with those closest to President Bush, including family, friends, sports and media celebrities who shared their fondest and funniest stories about Bush’s leadership, humor, bipartisanship and integrity. The film debuted domestically on CNN in June 2014 and is currently available on Netflix, iTunes, Amazon and as video on demand on cable systems worldwide. Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David McCullough called 41ON41 “a great gift to history.”

41ON41 takes the viewer on an emotional journey as it reveals a remarkable husband, father, grandfather and friend who also happened to be the leader of the free world. President Bush’s handling of the momentous events of 1989 through 1992 — among them the Fall of the Berlin Wall, the unprecedented international coalition after Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait, and the 1990 budget deal — are described by eyewitnesses to history who were inside the Oval Office.

The narrative is a seamless weave of behind-the-scenes stories — some funny, some poignant, all fascinating. Led by former First Lady Barbara Bush, the 41 storytellers include an interesting array of people from former presidents and world leaders… to comedians, Hall of Famers and skydivers … to Secret Service agents, White House butlers, family members, fishing buddies and more — several of whom have never spoken on camera until now.
