West Mall 7 Theatres – Doors Open 6:00pm – Film Begins 6:30pm
TRT: 90 min
Film Summary: 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. Jane honors its subject’s legacy with an absorbing, beautifully filmed, and overall enlightening look at her decades of invaluable work.
What the critics are saying:
One of the best documentaries of 2017.
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
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.
– LA Weekly
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.
