Did You Know?


Jane Goodall: It was probably mostly frustrating because they kept running away. And while chimpanzees are running away from you, you can't really get down to the details of their behavior and in the back of my mind it was always the fear if I don't find out something exciting, the money will run out cause all my earlier observations were either chimps close up running away or sitting on the peak or some other spot and watching them through binoculars.

A fascinating look into an iconic life
26 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

Jane Goodall is a pioneer of primatologist. Her work was controversial at the time for many reasons. In this documentary, Jane does the narration with occasional questions from the interviewer. She goes into detail about her life and thoughts.

Jane was a remarkable and fearless woman and has been my idol since childhood. This is a beautiful look into her life. Some say the found footage is posed... of course it is. It's cut pieces of various National Geographic documentaries about her work. It was used to help bring them funding by focusing on a brave, beautiful young woman facing the hardships alone. There are naturally some posed shots. Also some personal home movie type shots. And some of the iconic footage at the end that are so well known.
