A documentary about the life and work of the renowned primatology scientist, Jane Goodall, especially on her research about chimpanzees.
Thursday 25 January 2018 at 11.00 am & 7.30 pm
JANE (PG) – 2017 USA 90 min
Director: Brett Morgen
Features: Jane Goodall, Hugo Van Lawick
In 1960, a twenty-six year old primatologist and secretary of palaeontologist Louis Leakey, Jane Goodall, was chosen to conduct research in Africa for the study of the influence of apes on primitive man. Though she was not a scientist and never attended university, her open mind and love of animals meant the decision to choose her turned out to be a wise one. Drawn from over 100 hours of footage that has been kept in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of “A portrait of the primatologist as a young woman” (Guardian), a woman who‘s research featuring chimpanzees challenged the understanding of the natural world. The film is accompanied by rich orchestral score composed by the legendary Philip Glass.

From anchorwoman to homeless man, from Pop Art to Dogma 95, an ever-changing Cate Blanchett gives an impressive performance as she transforms herself, treating audiences to a wide-range of accents and characters. From acclaimed visual artist Julian Rosefeldt, this unique film is hilarious, absurd, poignant and delivers a “hypnotic fascination” (The Guardian) in its celebration of ideas, architecture and transformative acting.
