Drawing from never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives, director Brett Morgen tells the story of JANE, a woman whose chimpanzee research revolutionized our understanding of the natural world.
National Geographic announced the theatrical release of JANE, a film about Jane Goodall and her early years in Gombe.
JANE tells the true story of Jane Goodall as a young woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. The film, from award-winning director Brett Morgen, offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of the trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.
In select theaters this October!
