A new documentary about Jane Goodall, featuring restored footage from the National Geographic Archives that has not been seen in 50 years.
“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. JANE may be neither the first nor the last film on the pioneering British primatologist, but it will likely stand as the definitive portrait. She’s an inspiring subject, honored here in a truly stirring legacy portrait.” The Hollywood Reporter

Shoot your own movie. I used a little Canon Powershot to capture the majesty of Victoria Falls, and Chewbacca the cheetah going from 0-60mph.

Chewbacca was one of many cheetahs rescued by Dr. Laurie Marker who founded the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia, which has more cheetah than any other African country. Formerly Southwest Africa, Namibia is an easy flight from Johannesburg, and features the world’s largest sand dunes, desert elephant, and the famous Etosha National Park.
