Mary Loss of Soul
Mary Loss of Soul won the Best Picture Award and director Jennifer B. White won the Best Director Award at the Boston International Film Festival. Congratulations!
"What if a young girl lost part of her soul, but was still alive?"
This is the question writer and director Jennifer B. White '88 asked herself when beginning the script for her film Mary Loss of Soul, a film that has brought her acclaim from all over the nation and especially here in Boston.
The film is not only screening at the Boston International Film Festival (BIFF) in April 2014, but it has also been accepted to the L.A. Women's International Film Festival (LAWIFF) and Palm Beach International Film Festival (PBIFF). White will be the only Boston-based female to have a feature film screen at BIFF.
Though she lives and writes from Boston, MA, White is often in Los Angeles where she works on movies. She has worked for Universal Pictures on movie marketing campaigns and as a Hollywood tagline writer, marketing for movies ranging from Little Fockers to The Fast and the Furious. Additionally, she is a published novelist and screenwriter, and is one of the few female directors to take on the horror/supernatural genre.
Also playing a crucial role in Mary Loss of Soul is producer and Curry alum Stew Huey '85. Huey is the Principal of Oak Ivy Productions, a film production company based in Los Angeles and Boston. Prior to establishing Oak Ivy, he was the Vice President of Creative Operations at Universal Pictures in Los Angeles for over ten years.
Huey and White shot the film locally in the towns of Foxborough and Mansfield, MA. When White stumbled across the subject of "Loss of Soul," she was intrigued. While the condition has been recognized and treated for thousands of years in cultures all over the world, very few people have ever heard about it.
Mary Loss of Soul follows the events of 15 year-old Mary who, after vanishing from her family's lake house, returns without any memory of the traumatic events she experienced. Even while a nefarious mystery surrounds its circumstance-and a wrathful spirit begins haunting them-the Solis family's biggest fear is yet to be faced.
When it's discovered that two little girls, the same age as Mary's sister, Sophia, went missing on the lake the very night that Mary disappeared, the stakes are raised. Is Mary suffering from a centuries old condition known as Loss of Soul? Or, is it something more nefarious? After enlisting the help of a Shaman, the Solis family embarks on a journey to the spirit worlds, hunting for a supernatural cure (Mary Loss of Soul press release).
