Brett Morgen is listed as the director of Jane, the award-winning documentary about conservation icon Jane Goodall, but its the 1960s archival footage shot by Dutch filmmaker Hugo van Lawick that stands out. His reverence for Goodall as stunning as any model from that decade translated to real life, as well; the two were married shortly after he started filming her. Goodall, now 83, is still a formidable presence. See for yourself when she speaks at the University of Minnesota on March 23 or at the Home of Lifes Spring Gala the following night at International Market Square.
