A new documentary about Jane Goodall, featuring restored footage from National Geographic Archives not 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 –Watch the trailer here.
