From Monday, January 8th, to Wednesday, January 10th, Jane will be shown in Thalian Hall's Main Stage Theatre. The film will play Monday to Wednesday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm.
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 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.
From the Critics
“Brett Morgen’s documentary is most evocative as a memorable portrait of a woman, both in youth and late life, who always knew what she wanted — and who, in doing so, helped make the world a better place.”
“For all the advancements that Goodall brought to our understanding of chimpanzees, the real lesson of Jane may be that it is connection - whether among humans or chimpanzees - that is the true measure of a species.”
