“Set to an almost overwhelmingly emotional original score by Philip Glass, this is a wondrous and moving account of a remarkable life that puts us right there with Goodall”—David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
Drawing from more than 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for more than 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.
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. The Kansas City Symphony will accompany this stunning documentary with a live performance of the rich orchestral score by legendary composer Philip Glass.
Single tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, September 6 at 10 a.m.
