The concepts raised in “The Book of Jane” are profound and often complex, and provides evidence of the artistic and intellectual power that can be generated through underground filmmaking." - Phil Hall (5 stars) http://www.filmthreat.com/reviews/71908/
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 an urban fable of Feminine initiation where three women attempt to advance the values of an ancient culture but at a deep cost no one expected.
