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.

Tickets: $8 (members), $13 (nonmembers)
