Drawing from over 100 hours of jaw-dropping, never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, Oscar-nominated director Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays in the Picture) tells the story of Jane, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world.
“Jane isn’t just required viewing for fans of Goodall or animal lovers, but anyone seeking a classic in the making.” – Kate Erbland, IndieWire
Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate and poetic portrait of Jane Goodall – a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most respected and admired conservationists. (Dir. by Brett Morgen, 2017, USA, 90 mins., Not Rated)
