Jane will delight those familiar with Ms. Goodall and provide a vibrant introduction for newcomers.”

Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage, unearthed from the National Geographic archives, award-winning director Brett Morgen (Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck) tells the story of Jane Goodall as a young, untrained scientist. We follow Goodall as she conducts the chimpanzee research that ultimately 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, Jane offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Goodall—a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.
