JANE
2017, National Geographic, 90 min, USA, Dir: Brett Morgen

Drawing from more than 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of JANE, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall - a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.


GORILLAS IN THE MIST
1988, Universal, 129 min, USA, Dir: Michael Apted

Inspired by anthropologist Louis Leakey, Dian Fossey (Sigourney Weaver) travels to Africa to study mountain gorillas. Though she developed a remarkable relationship with these apes through her research, Fossey found the human problems of war, poaching and corruption far more difficult to solve. This inspiring real-life drama about the woman who helped save the gorillas from extinction earned Golden Globes and Oscar nominations for both Weaver and composer Maurice Jarre. Costarring Julie Harris and Bryan Brown.


INHERIT THE WIND
1960, Park Circus/MGM, 128 min, USA, Dir: Stanley Kramer

Science and religion go head-to-head in some of the most memorable performances in film history. Nominated for Best Actor (Spencer Tracy), Cinematography, and Screenplay at the 1961 Academy Awards.
