The Ridgefield Independent Film Festival won’t take place for several months, but the festival will hold a one-night-only screening on Tuesday, April 24, of a documentary about a scientific icon.
“Jane” tells of the life and work of legendary primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall, who is the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees and a founding board member of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which advocates to change the legal status of animals from property to persons.
Brett Morgen’s movie will be shown at 7 p.m. at Ridgefield Playhouse, 80 East Ridge. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Bill Wallauer and Kristin Mosher of the Jane Goodall Institute. Admission is $16.62, free for students with ID. eventbrite.com.
