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 (The Kid Stays in the Picture) 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.

CRITIC'S PICK "[Brett Morgen] fashions a firsthand account of what Ms. Goodall learned about the chimps’ capacity for toolmaking, nurturing and cruelty, and what they taught her when she became a parent herself. Jane will delight those familiar with Ms. Goodall and provide a vibrant introduction for newcomers." — Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times
