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.
