Jane's Journey
Filmfest 2010

More than 20 years ago, Dr. Jane Goodall, now 75, decided to give up her career as a primatologist, in order to devote her entire energy to saving our endangered planet. Since then she’s been spending 300 days a year scouring the globe on her mission to spread hope for future generations as a UN Messenger of Peace. She has been honoured with countless awards, was appointed "Dame of the British Empire" and was even admitted to the "Légion d’Honneur", the highest decoration of France. In Jane’s Journey, we accompany her on her travels across several continents, with unprecedented access. From her childhood home in Bournemouth, England, we embark to Gombe National Park on Lake Tanganyika, in Tanzania, her second home. This is where she began her groundbreaking research nearly half a century ago, and where to this day she still returns every year to enjoy the company of the chimpanzees that made her the internationally recognized activist so loved and deeply respected. www.janesjourney.net
