Jane Rosemont – Director
Jane Rosemont is an award-winning filmmaker & photographer based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Jane’s debut film The Pie Lady of Pie Town, narrated by veteran actor Wes Studi, premiered in Hollywood in June 2014, and has been an official selection in over 40 festivals, winning eighteen awards.
Jane was born in Detroit, Michigan, the youngest of eight happy children. After dragging her feet through college and holding jobs without passion, she met an Olympus OM2 that gave her the focus she lacked and desperately craved. Her photography has been exhibited and published across the USA for three decades. A book of black and white portraits entitled “Saving Faces” was published in 1996. Proud and grateful to be a breast cancer survivor since 1990, she lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico with her husband Dick. (They have set out to prove that it really is “fun with Dick & Jane.”) Dick Rosemont produced Pie Lady of Pie Town. He buys and sells vinyl as The Guy in the Groove, is a music researcher, writer, and archivist.
Jane has completed her second film, a narrative short film entitled Apotheosis which will screen at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival in October, 2016.

Wes Studi – Narrator
From small-town Oklahoma native to internationally acclaimed actor and musician, Wes Studi credits his passion and multi-faceted background for his powerful character portrayals that forever changed a Hollywood stereotype.
Drawing from his rich life experience, Wes moved audiences with unforgettable performances in “Dances with Wolves,” “The Last of the Mohicans,” “Geronimo: An American Legend,” and “Heat,” as well as James Cameron’s “Avatar” and Paul Weitz’s “Being Flynn.” Breaking new ground, he brought fully-developed Native American characters to the screen, and then took his craft a step further highlighting the success of Native Americans in non-traditional roles.
In 2013, he was inducted in to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum’s Hall of Great Western Performers. Throughout his 30-year career he’s won numerous awards, including several First Americans in the Arts awards and the 2009 Santa Fe Film Festival Lifetime Achievement Award.
