“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. The immense strength of this remarkable woman is on such powerful display that, twenty minutes into the film, tears welled from my eyes and did not stop, even after I left the theater.” –April Wolfe, Village Voice.
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.
“This is a wondrous and moving account of a remarkable life that puts us right there with Goodall to share directly in her discoveries.” –Hollywood Reporter.
“Involving and immediate. “Jane” will delight those familiar with Ms. Goodall and provide a vibrant introduction for newcomers” –New York Times. PG. 91 Min.
