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.
Director: Brett Morgen
The campaign for the theatrical release of JANE sought to exposing students to Dr. Jane Goodall’s work and potentially fostered a new interest in science, celebrate the women in science and the importance of scientific field research, and champion the need to defend wildlife and protect their habitats. Through the JANE broadcast premiere watch parties and partnerships program, Picture Motion and National Geographic sought to create a meaningful experience for watching the film and help inspire young adults and children to be like Dr. Jane Goodall.
