Official Trailer

Jane Goodall’s years spent among the chimpanzees of the Gombe National Park in Tanzania, as well as contemporary footage of Jane, now in her 80s, are featured in this documentary, which utilizes previously unseen film from the archives of National Geographic. This is a memorable portrait of a woman with a passion for animals, but no formal background in research, who navigates the male-dominated worlds of science and media to revolutionize people’s understanding of the natural world and become a world-famous face of the conservation movement. Winner of many awards for Best Documentary in 2017.
