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.

Read film review by Campbell Dalglish here.

“For all the advancements that Goodall brought to our understanding of chimpanzees, the real lesson of JANE may be that it is connection - whether among humans or chimpanzees - that is the true measure of a species.” — Pat Padua, Washington Post

“One of the best documentaries of the year so far.” — Brian Tallerico,
