Drawing on over 100 hours of unseen footage, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of Jane Goodall, a woman whose pioneering research with chimpanzees not only challenged the male dominated scientific consensus of the time but revolutionised 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.
‘A film of deep emotional beauty … A stunning achievement’
‘A wondrous, moving account of a remarkable life that puts us right there with its subject to share directly in her discoveries.’
