"The concepts raised in “The Book of Jane” are profound and often complex and provide evidence of the artistic and intellectual power that can be generated through underground filmmaking." - Phil Hall, film threat.com (5 stars)

SYNOPSIS
Alice, a Professor of Comparative Religion, is writing a book exalting the ancient values of pre-Hellenic goddess mythologies. One day she meets Jane, an enigmatic older woman who roams the university campus, sleeps under a bridge, and who rattles her with disturbing insights. Alice is also a muse to her partner Colette, an inspired artist who paints goddess portraits. When Colette hears about Jane, she encourages a reluctant Alice to invite her over for dinner. "The Book of Jane" is a story of three women bound together by fate to advance the values of an ancient culture but at a deep cost no one expected. It's also a story of the buried histories of the nomadic homeless.
