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.
JANE comes to Coral Gables' Coral Gables Art Cinema Nov 3-9. Ron Magill will introduce the 7pm screening Friday, Nov 3. Following the screening, Mr. Magill and Dr. Sian Evans of FIU will engage with the audience about the documentary, primate intelligence, and the importance of Jane Goodall's work.
Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Dr. Jane Goodall — a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.
