JANE with the Seattle Symphony

Immerse yourself in the world of pioneering primatologist Jane Goodall with the stunning National Geographic documentary, JANE. Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of Goodall, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. The film is set against a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass. See the film on a giant screen while the Seattle Symphony performs Glass’ score live in the concert hall.
