Synopsis

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.

…The real lesson of “Jane” may be that it is connection – whether among humans or chimpanzees – that is the true measure of a species.

Whatever you know about Jane Goodall, there’s more to learn from Jane, a gorgeous documentary devoted to the life of the famed primatologist and her life’s work with chimpanzees.
