Free Screening of “Jane” Takes Place Thursday, November 2

A free screening of the new documentary “Jane” will take place on Thursday, November 2, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. in Brown Hall 118 on the Danforth Campus of Washington University.

Using a trove of footage from the National Geographic archives, “Jane” tells the true story of Jane Goodall as a young woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world.

Crickette Sanz, Washington University associate professor of biological anthropology, will provide an introduction to the film. The event is free and open to the public. The screening is presented as part of the St. Louis International Film Festival. For more information, contact Diana Bell, events and communications coordinator for the University Libraries.
