JANE: Earth Day Special Documentary Screening

  • 22 April 2021
  • 19:00 - 21:30
  • EF | Education First, Shanghai

Join Green Initiatives and Roots & Shoots' (Beijing) special Earth Day 2021 screening of Jane, a 2017 American biographical documentary film directed and written by Brett Morgen about primatologist, ethologist, and anthropologist Jane Goodall.


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.

Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall — a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.

Documentary is in English and comes with Chinese subtitles.
