It would be hard to name anyone who has had more of an impact on animal behavior research and wildlife conservation than Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace, whose more than 50-year field study of wild chimpanzees in Africa is legendary. In Jane’s Journey, we travel with her across several continents, from her childhood home in England, to what is today Gombe National Park in Tanzania, where she began her groundbreaking research and where she still returns every year to enjoy the company of the chimpanzees that made her famous. Featuring a wide range of interviews and spectacular footage from her own private collection, including her years at Gombe, the film is an inspiring portrait of the private person behind the world-famous icon. Directed by Lorenz Knauer.
