Free WashU Screening: 'Jane'

On campus screening of documentary on Jane Goodall

The Washington University Libraries’ Student Engagement Committee is pleased to be holding a free campus screening of the new documentary, Jane, on this Thursday, November 2 at 3pm in Brown Hall room 118. Jane, which recounts the early career of Jane Goodall, reveals aspects of the legendary primatologist’s work and relationships, all via Jane Goodall’s own words. The film’s imagery is culled from hundreds of hours of never-before-seen footage of Goodall in Gombe, Tanzania, doing her pioneering work in the 1960s. Jane, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, has received stellar reviews, including these reviews from Indiewire and The Hollywood Reporter:

Jane has yet to premiere in St. Louis, and thus this is the first opportunity to see this extraordinary documentary locally, and it’s available only to the campus community. It is a film that is sure to inspire students, especially those interested in science and anthropology.

The screening will include an introduction by Washington University Associate Professor of Biological Anthropology Crickette Sanz. The screening is made possible through partnership with the St. Louis International Film Festival. A flyer for the event is attached. Please feel free to promote to any faculty, students, or student groups who you think might want to come.
