Oscar-nominated documentarian Brett Morgen (On The Ropes) chronicles primatologist Jane Goodall's early career through reconstituted National Geographic footage, with a score by Philip Glass.
"In new interviews, Goodall looks back to the era when she was breaking ground as the first person to study chimpanzees so closely. The footage records her interactions with primates who became as close to her as humans, including the high-ranking mother chimp called Flo. Both the chimpanzees and Goodall underwent relationship trials and tribulations that she frankly recounts. As a female scientist without previous formal training, she was breaking boundaries and defying expectations. This emotional journey will leave a lasting impression."
