Jane's Journey - Die Lebensreise der Jane Goodall

Deutschland / USA 2009/2010, Dokumentarfilm

Inhalt

More than twenty years ago, Dr. Jane Goodall, now 76,
decided to give up her career as a primatologist, as well as
her private life, in order to devote her entire energy to
saving our en dangered planet. Since then she’s been
spending 300 days per year traveling around the globe
spreading hope for future generations by giving lectures,
writing books and through her youth organization ’Roots
& Shoots’, active in more than 100 countries worldwide.

From her childhood home in Bournemouth/England, we
travel with her to the Gombe National Park on the shores
of Lake Tanganyika, in Tanzania, her second home. Here
is where she began her groundbreaking research nearly
half a century ago, and where she returns every year to
enjoy the company of the chimpanzees that made her
famous. We accompany her on her journey across several
continents and learn about her exciting past. Featuring tributes
and comments by people who are very close to her,
and film material from her years at Gombe, Jane’s
Journey is a portrait of the private person behind the
world-famous icon.

It is the story of an exceptional
woman, possibly the most fascinating woman of our time.
With its unhurried pace and unobtrusive camera, this
documentary shows the charismatic and eloquent Jane
Goodall as she has never been seen before. Intimate conversations
with Goodall alternate with spectacular footage
of her and her beloved chimpanzees as well as revealing
comments by her son, her colleagues and even Hollywood
celebrities. The definitive film on the ardent advocate for
the protection of the earth!
