Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, Oscar®-nominated director Brett Morgen (Cobain: Montage of Heck) tells the story of primatologist Jane Goodall.

Goodall's chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of the time and revolutionised our understanding of the natural world. In new interviews Goodall looks back on her work and archive footage records her interactions with primates who became as close to her as humans: both the chimps and Goodall would go through their fair share of trials and tribulations.

Set to a majestic 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.
