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 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.
It is a gut-wrenching human story and fresh look at a social and legal issue that affects every community in America.
Called “a gripping legal thriller” (Esquire); “a powerful call to action” (The Los Angeles Times); “a viscerally emotional case” (The Washington Post); “a powerful piece of work” (Elle), “striking, powerful” (The Film Journal), the film opened on February 10 in select cities and will be screened in various cities and countries starting on February 20.
50% of all profits from this project will be donated to organizations which serve Jane Doe children.
