A poetic portrait of the life and work of primatologist Jane Goodall.

The film is screening as part of DOC NYC’s Short List, for which our program notes read:
In the 1960s, National Geographic sent a cameraman to film Jane Goodall’s pioneering work with chimpanzees in Tanzania’s Gombe Stream National Park. More than 50 years later, filmmaker Brett Morgen (KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK, ON THE ROPES) gained access to over 140 hours of this remarkable 16mm color footage. Morgen combines this archival material with a new interview with Goodall to craft a romantic epic of her formative years, set to an original score by Philip Glass. The film “transcends the boundaries of both nature film and biography” (The Hollywood Reporter).
