Brett Morgan/2017/90 min/Wildlife
FILM DESCRIPTION: Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated director Brett Morgan tells the story of Jane Goodall, 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. This rich film was selected by the London Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival, as well. Jane is one of several One Earth Film Festival selections highlighting strong women.
May contain heavy themes and graphic images.
Teens and young adults are encouraged to attend.
