JANE is a fantastic new documentary that’s already getting Oscar buzz.  Oscar-nominated director Brett Morgan (The Kid Stays In The Picture) brings a portrait of the world-renowned researcher that has been called “one of the best documentaries of 2017” by Brian Tellerico of RogerEbert.com.

Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years JANE  tells the story of 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.

“Transcends the boundaries of both nature films and biographies. Its epic elements of adventure, romance, and spiritual connection possess a sweep equal to any narrative film. A wondrous, moving, and truly stirring portrait that puts us right there with Goodall to share in her discoveries, propelled by the majestic sounds of Philip Glass. This is a truly stirring legacy portrait.”  DAVID ROONEY, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
