JANE
Rated PG (2017) 90 minutes

Directed by Brett Morgan
Starring: Jane Goodall

Come see movies the way they were meant to be seen...on the big screen with amazing surround sound in the Library's newly renovated Salem Family Auditorium.

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.

Free and open to all.
