FILM DESCRIPTION: Drawing from more than 100 hours of never-before-seen footage from the National Geographic archives, Oscar-nominated director Brett Morgan tells the story of Jane Goodall, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the prevailing scientific consensus and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. Set to music by composer Philip Glass, the film offers an intimate portrait of one of the world’s most admired conservationists. Jane is one of several One Earth Film Festival selections highlighting strong women. Teens and young adults encouraged to attend. May contain heavy themes and graphic images.
