“Jane isn’t just required viewing for fans of Goodall or animal lovers, but anyone seeking a classic in the making." - Indiewire
Crafted from never-seen-before archive footage, award-winning filmmaker Brett Morgen tells the extraordinary and inspiring story of British primatologist Jane Goodall and the profound effect the animals she loved had on her life.
In 1964, 26-year-old Goodall travelled to Tanzania on the first-ever mission to study chimpanzees in the wild and her work over the subsequent decades would open an unprecedented window into their lives. Morgen makes incredible use of over 100 hours of footage shot by Goodall’s future husband, the wildlife photographer Hugo van Lawick, transporting us into Goodall’s world of discovery, both as a scientist and as a woman and mother.
Jane is an intimate and luminous portrait of a trailblazing woman who changed the way we understand the species closest to our own.
