A beautiful film, in contention for this year's Oscar™ for feature length documentary.
Told largely through the fluid use of never-before-seen National Geographic footage shot at the time, and using her diaries and current reflections, the film traces the early years of Jane Goodall's studies of chimpanzees in the wild, telling the remarkable story of how this incredibly young and not-formally-educated woman was chosen by Louis Leakey and sent out to develop and execute a totally different kind of wild animal study, by living among them. Along the way, a rather tender love story is told as well. Backed with a beautiful and evocative score by Philip Glass, this is not a film to be missed. "...remarkably accessible and almost unbearably tender... (Brett) Morgen has made a film of deep emotional beauty," Kate Erbland, Indiewire; POV Doc Soup #1 Documentary of the Year
