Jane Image FINAL

Hours of previously unseen National Geographic footage provide an intimate glimpse into the groundbreaking work of famed chimpanzee researcher Jane Goodall. After traveling to Tanzania in 1960 with paleontologist Louis Leakey, Goodall completed years of fieldwork with a group of wild chimpanzees in the Gombe Stream National Park, and has since become a champion for conservation and animal welfare issues.  Framed by charming animation sequences and narration from Goodall herself, this documentary focuses on Goodall’s relationship with the chimpanzees, as well as her romance with wildlife photographer Hugo van Lawick, who was sent to document her work. Introduction by Nick Nichols (National Geographic Magazine)
