SYNOPSIS:
JANE is a 2017 American biographical documentary film directed and written by Brett Morgen about primatologist, ethologist, and anthropologist Jane Goodall.

The film had its world premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival at Winter Garden Theatre on September 10, 2017. The film was also screened with a performance by a live orchestra at a sold-out Hollywood Bowl on October 9,2 2017.

NOTES:
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.
