Jane – Magnolia at the Modern – Fort Worth, TX

I am going to write about a film before actually seeing it.  I am doing so to get the word out in hopes that people will go see it.

“Jane” is a documentary about Jane Goodall.  It is only showing in Fort Worth this weekend at The Modern Art Museum’s Magnolia at the Modern.

I saw Jane Goodall speak at the University of Texas Arlington by invitation of my friend Anne in March of 2016.

I love animals and at the time I thought she was just a lady that studied chimpanzees when she was young.  She is so much more than that.

I was blown away by the inspiration she cultivated in me.

  • She has spent nearly 5 decades on the scientific exploration of the behavior of chimpanzees which ultimately redefined the relationship between humans and animals
  • She is a UN Messenger of Peace
  • She spends 300 days a year traveling to devote herself to conservation and animal welfare issues by sharing stories of hope
  • She inspires millions globally to make the world a better place for all living things
  • She broke down barriers for women that I did not even know existed

If you get some time this Holiday Weekend, do go see this.
