Plot Summary
Dr. Jane Goodall is a well-known anthropologist famous for her work with primates in Africa. This film follows her travels through the world speaking about her conservationism and scientific research, most notably her four-and-a-half-decadelong study of African chimpanzees. Although well into her 70s at the time of this film, Goodall is sprightly, energetic and a seemingly endless font of knowledge about her subject in particular and conservationism in general.

  • Jane's Journey is an exceedingly graceful and dignified sleep aid. show more

  • Despite the fact that Goodall narrates the bulk of the material, there are scant details about her concrete contributions to animal and life science save for her observing of chimp-made tools. show more
