Mary Jane is a Film Production Professor at Boston University.  She got her start at MIT's Film/Video program under Ricky Leacock in 1985 then freelanced for Blackside Inc, Northern Light Productions and VIDA Health Communications, among others.

 

Eventually, (once the dog died and domestic concerns eased up) she emerged as a filmmaker in her own right, making two feature films about children growing up in the Cuban Ballet System:  SECUNDARIA (2013) and PRIMARIA (2016)

  

In April, 2017, she had her first theatrical retrospective in Cambridge, MA and also received the 2017 Inaugural Boston Artists Fellowship.
