Jane Goodall’s chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated field of primatology and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. In the 1960s, National Geographic sent a cameraman to film her work in Tanzania, resulting in over 140 hours of footage that remained in storage for decades—until now. Academy Award-nominated director Brett Morgen weaves together a stunning portrait of the trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.
“One of the best documentaries of 2017.” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
“A truly stirring portrait that puts us right there with Goodall to share in her discoveries.” – David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
