  • "it’s cinematic justice that over a hundred hours of footage of Jane Goodall crossed paths with Brett Morgen, as both are pioneers in their field, and only Morgen seems capable of shaping that footage in such a unique, captivating, inspiring way as in “Jane,” one of the best documentaries of the year so far."
  • So this event's run dates show through Jan. 1... any chance there's going to be a New Year's Day show?
  • "Brett Morgen’s “Jane” is one of the year’s most thrilling movie experiences. Assembled from over 100 hours of 16mm footage recently rediscovered in the National Geographic archives, the film brings us along with young Dr. Jane Goodall to the outer reaches of Tanzania’s Gombe Stream National Park, where her pioneering research on chimpanzees revolutionized our scientific understanding of the natural world. But as the director insisted over the phone earlier this week, “This is not a film about science. I failed science. It was my worst subject. This is a love story about a woman and her work. From the first conception, it was intended to be a sort of cinematic opera.”
  • This looks amazing! Wish we were going to be in town.
