Jane is a documentary about Jane Goodall’s groundbreaking research on chimpanzees.

Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of Jane, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall — a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists. [2017, US, Runtime: 90 minutes, Rated: PG].

“A close-up, extraordinary look at Jane Goodall’s pioneering work with chimpanzees in 1960s Tanzania”, writes Carla Mayer in The San Francisco Chronicle. David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter calls Jane, “a nature film that benefits greatly from being seen on the big screen. Its epic elements of adventure, romance, spiritual connection and lifelong dedication to a cause possess a sweep equal to any narrative feature.”

The Florida Project is a deeply moving and unforgettably poignant drama about childhood.

Set on a stretch of highway just outside the imagined utopia of Disney World, The Florida Project follows six-year-old Moonee (Brooklynn Prince in a stunning breakout turn) and her rebellious mother Halley (Bria Vinaite, another major discovery) over the course of a single summer. The two live week to week at “The Magic Castle,” a budget motel managed by Bobby (a career-best Willem Dafoe), whose stern exterior hides a deep reservoir of kindness and compassion. Despite her harsh surroundings, the precocious and ebullient Moonee has no trouble making each day a celebration of life, her endless afternoons overflowing with mischief and grand adventure as she and her ragtag playmates fearlessly explore the utterly unique world into which they’ve been thrown. Unbeknownst to Moonee, however, her delicate fantasy is supported by the toil and sacrifice of Halley, who is forced to explore increasingly dangerous possibilities in order to provide for her daughter. [2017, US, Runtime: 111 minutes, Rated: R]

“This movie accomplishes something almost miraculous — two things, actually. It casts a spell and tells the truth,” writes A.O. Scott in The New York Times. Emily Yoshida of New York Magazine calls The Florida Project, “a near-perfect film…brilliant, buoyant, and ultimately heart-wrenching.”
