Screening of the documentary, followed by Q&A with director Brett Morgen

This acclaimed new documentary offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall, with director Brett Morgen in attendance for a post-screening Q&A

Including never-before-seen footage from the National Geographic archives, this acclaimed new documentary offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall, whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world.

Goodall’s story begins in 1960, when the 26-year-old British woman arrives in a remote area of Tanzania to study chimpanzees. Driven by her love of animals but lacking any formal training, she challenges conventional research methods by forming emotional bonds with her subjects and gaining their trust.

Set to a rich orchestral score by Philip Glass, this remarkable film honors a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.
