We can say, angry with/ at someone. Is angry towards someone correct? For example, I'm very angry with my friend, Mara. Can I say: I'm very angry towards Mara?

    In "I'm very angry towards Mara?" you are saying that your anger is going in the direction of Mara. It is not wrong, but certainly a more passive construction than saying "I'm very angry with my friend, Mara".

I wouldn't say it is wrong, but it sounds odd. If you want to indicate a direction for your anger, "at" sounds more natural:

I am very angry at Mara.
