Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of JANE, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world.

Deep insight into the life of Jane Goodall. Great footage of the chimpanzees' lives. Why chimpanzees lose their habitat is not discussed.
