Sometimes we just need a night curled up on the couch, watching something that’s easy to digest, has great footage, and tells a story that leaves us both inspired and educated. Jane, a documentary focusing on Dr. Jane Goodall’s work as a primatology scientist, is just that.
This mix of nature film and biography is both entertaining and eye-opening, and it’s with no surprise that is was voted one of the best documentaries of 2017 (we know it’s 2019; this one just flew under our radar).
Within this documentary you’ll discover how Jane challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of humans and primates, and what discoveries she made after being accepted by one of the animals she’s dedicated her life to studying: the chimpanzee.
Jump into Netflix, grab your blanket and cuddle in.
