Description

Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen 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. Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall - a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world's most admired conservationists.

 

"It's most evocative as a memorable portrait of a woman, both in youth and late life, who always knew what she wanted - and who, in doing so, helped make the world a better place." - Seattle Times

 

"There are no loose ends or wasted time; everything builds to a rising crescendo that makes you feel like your heart is going to burst." - Village Voice
