Mary Mazzio Trailers
Mary Mazzio, director of the new documentary film I Am Jane Doe, hails from a highly accomplished and diverse background. Mazzio is a force to be reckoned with whether she’s navigating the Charles River in a rowing shell (she was a 1992 Olympian), negotiating a corporate contract on Boston’s State Street (she is a former partner with the law firm Brown Rudnick) or collaborating with the White House to make a film that helps fund STEM education for under-represented students, as she did with her last film, Underwater Dreams. Always concerned with social causes, Mazzio did pro bono legal work for the homeless. She noticed a commonality facing her clients and decided she could be more effective bringing their stories to a wider audience through film. To that end, she left the law firm to pursue her new career as a filmmaker and founded 50 Eggs, Inc., an independent film production company dedicated to creating films with social impact. In all of Mazzio’s films her mission is to shed light on compelling narratives of social significance, making her one of the country’s prominent filmmakers promoting stories of diversity.
