film synopsis

You may think you know Jane Goodall’s story, but you have never seen the famed primatologist quite like this. This remarkable documentary came together when more than 100 hours of film were discovered in the National Geographic archives. Behind the lens of the decades-old footage was the late Hugo van Lawick, legendary wildlife photographer and filmmaker and Jane’s first husband. In the hands of director Brett Morgen, and set to a powerful score by Philip Glass, Lawick’s raw material becomes an emotional, intimate portrait of a passionate, groundbreaking conservationist. While narrating her own story, Jane opens up about what it was like living in Tanzania’s Gombe National Park, actualizing her childhood dream of living with animals, while falling in love with the man who was capturing it all. And it’s easy to fall in love with 26-year old Jane, as she sets off on a journey that would change the scientific world, and her own, forever.
