Jane (2017, Brett Morgen)

"Few images are more immediately satisfying than the one at the start of Brett Morgen’s archive-led bio-doc Jane, a picture-postcard scene that sees beloved primatologist Jane Goodall sitting atop an arching tree, surveying the luscious green expanse in front of her. Queen of her domain, friend to all apes. One of many captivating scenes, this magnificent looking doc finds new life in well-covered material through it’s assemblage of a visual narrative out of 140+ hours of newly available, almost incomprehensibly luscious 16mm archive recorded by Goodall’s jungle confidant and ex-husband, famed nature photographer Hugo van Lawick."
