Academy Award–nominated director Brett Morgen (Montage of Heck), one of the finest stylists working in documentary film, has crafted this wonderfully poetic look at primatologist and animal rights activist Jane Goodall. A beautiful and captivating work which utilises National Geographic footage of Goodall when she was newly arrived in Gombe National Park in Tanzania some fifty years ago, Goodall leads Morgen through her extraordinary life and work. Propelled by an epic score courtesy of Philip Glass, this is a breathtaking and comprehensive portrait of a truly inspiring subject.
