I Am Jane Doe is the latest effort by Babson College Filmmaker In Residence Mary Mazzio.
Writer/Director/Producer Mary Mazzio, an award-winning documentary film writer/director; Olympic athlete; and former law firm partner, is Founder and CEO of 50 Eggs, Inc., an independent film production company. Mary wrote, directed and produced the highly acclaimed award-winning films, Underwater Dreams, The Apple Pushers, TEN9EIGHT, A Hero for Daisy, Apple Pie, Lemonade Stories, and Contrarian. Her most recent film, Underwater Dreams, narrated by Michael Peña was screened at the White House, and to date has raised over $100 million dollars in public and private partnerships for STEM Education.
I Am Jane Doe chronicles the epic battle that several American mothers are waging on behalf of their middle-school daughters, victims of sex trafficking on Backpage.com, the adult classifieds section that for years was part of the iconic Village Voice. Reminiscent of Erin Brockovich and Karen Silkwood, these mothers have stood up on behalf of thousands of other mothers, fighting back and refusing to take no for an answer.
