FILM DESCRIPTION: 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 Goodall, 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. This rich film was selected by the London Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival, as well.

Get a deeper understanding of Goodall’s contributions, as well as ape conservation, during a post-film Q & A session with Anna Gibson of the Jane Goodall Institute; Stephen Ross, Ph.D., Director of the Lester E. Fisher Center for the Study and Conservation of Apes at Lincoln Park Zoo; and Pat Cleveland Facilitator of Root & Shoots. Learn how you can support conservation science and projects that protect wildlife. Facilitator: Susan Lucci Creator of Experiences--2big4words.
