It would be hard to name anyone who has had more of an impact in the realm of animal research and wildlife conservation than Jane Goodall, whose 45 year 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 the 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 in Gombe), Jane's Journey is an inspiring portrait of the private person behind the world-famous icon.
"To be with Jane Goodall is like walking with Mahatma Gandhi." - Boston Globe
"A force of nature! The film is a beautiful tribute to Dr. Goodall's accomplishments, a celebration of her spirit and an inspiration for all of us to follow her example and make the world a better place for all."
