About “JANE” (from the official film website):
Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of JANE, 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.
. . .
“Transcends the boundaries of both nature films and biographies. Its epic elements of adventure, romance, and spiritual connection possess a sweep equal to any narrative film. A wondrous, moving, and truly stirring portrait that puts us right there with Goodall to share in her discoveries, propelled by the majestic sounds of Philip Glass. This is a truly stirring legacy portrait.”
