National Geographic handed filmmaker Brett Morgen over 140 hours of unseen 16mm color footage shot in the 1960s detailing the work of Jane Goodall studying chimpanzees in the wild in Africa. Jane will likely stand as the definitive portrait. Set to an almost overwhelmingly emotional original score by Philip Glass, this is a wondrous and moving account of a remarkable life that puts us right there with Goodall sharing directly in her discoveries. The epic elements of adventure, romance, spiritual connection and Goodall’s lifelong dedication to a cause make for a film that possesses a sweep equal to any narrative feature. In order to weave a thread through the reams of unlogged existing footage, Morgen took veteran indie cinematographer Ellen Kuras to Tanzania, filming a wide-ranging interview with Goodall, now in her early eighties, a subject of great candor, humor and warmth. National Board of Review Winner for Best Documentary 2017.
