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.
ABOUT THE FILM
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.
ABOUT Roots & Shoots
In 1991，Jane Goodall established Roots & Shoots in order to empower and encourage youth of all ages to pursue their passion, mobilize their peers, and become the leaders our world needs in order to ensure a better future for people, animals, and the environment.
In 1994, Roots & Shoots Beijing was established. They now have nearly 780 Roots & Shoots Groups in every province, municipality and autonomous region in Mainland China, with more than 24,000 registered members.
