Oscar-nominated director Brett Morgen tells the story of Jane Goodall, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. Jane draws from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years. Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, Jane offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall—a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.
“Transcends the boundaries of both nature films and biographies. Its epic elements of adventure, romance and spiritual connection possess a sweep equal to any narrative film. A wondrous, moving and truly stirring portrait that puts us right there with Goodall to share in her discoveries, propelled by the majestic sounds of Philip Glass. This is a truly stirring legacy portrait.” The Hollywood Reporter
