Head to the Jungle in the First Trailer for Brett Morgen’s ‘Jane’

Written by on September 26, 2017 


There’s been no shortage of Kurt Cobain documentaries, but Brett Morgen delivered one of the most bracingly personal and affecting with Montage of Heck a few years back. He’s now back with a look at the life of Jane Goodall, featuring a score by Philip Glass. Culled together from the 140 hours of 16mm footage that Hugo van Lawick captured of Goodall’s chimp interactions, as well as new interviews with the subject, it promises to be one of the most essential documentaries of the year.

Ahead of a stop by New York Film Festival and release later in October, National Geographic have now just released the first trailer, which takes a beautiful, fast-paced look at Goodall’s journey, including a peek at the aforementioned incredible footage. Check out the trailer below, which also includes a preview of Glass’ score.

JANE is the story of how Jane Goodall became Jane Goodall – using footage shot by future husband Hugo van Lawick of her first experiences in Gombe, Tanzinia in the 1960’s. Previously thought to be lost forever, the footage was only recently discovered in a storage unit, and has been now masterfully intercut with interviews of present day Jane Goodall to provide an in-depth portrait of her life. With an enchanting score by Phillip Glass, JANE is a captivating and immersive look into how one woman can change the world through passion, dedication, and perseverance.


Jane will hit theaters on October 20, 2017.
