Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage from the National Geographic archives, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of Jane Goodall, whose chimpanzee research challenged the 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 Goodall – a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists. (Brett Morgen, 2017, 90 min.)

“Watching Jane was like stepping back in time to a moment at which Homo sapiens learned something new and vital about its own family – the great apes. It was extraordinary.” The Telegraph (U.K.)
