Jane Gray

Jane Gray fell into filmmaking accidentally. A psychology major at Harvard, she took a video class on the side and discovered that she enjoyed filming people as much as studying them. She has been involved in filmmaking ever since. Her film credits include assistant editor on Richard P. Rogers’ A Midwife’s Tale (broadcast on PBS’s “American Experience,” 1996), and an editing role on Errol Morris’s Mr. Death, The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr. (1999). Jane is currently an associate of the Harvard Film Study Center. Playing House is her first film.

    Playing House

    This incisive and compelling documentary chronicles the lives of five seventh- and eighth-grade girls through their first year at the elite Fay School, the oldest junior boarding school in America. With great sensitivity to individual nuance and a sharp eye for significant moments of interaction, the film reveals how deftly these 12- and 13-year-olds learn and practice “womanly” arts of psycho-social warfare while dealing with complex personal issues such as body image, class and sexual identity, family dysfunction, and self-worth.
