Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS) will premiere Jane Goodall: Reasons For Hope starting on September 21. This large-format documentary film is co-produced by Science North in collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute, Cosmic Picture and film producer-director David Lickley.

“As the Hub for Resilience Education, it is critical that the Museum encourages people of all ages to act and mitigate climate change. This powerful documentary showcases the importance of taking action to address our community’s environmental issues,” said Joseph P. Cox, president and CEO of MODS. “It is important that we use science to encourage action and inspire hope for a better and healthier world.”

A renowned British-born ethologist, environmentalist, animal-rights activist, conservationist, author, educator and UN Messenger of Peace, Jane Goodall has spent the last 60 years working extensively on conservation and animal welfare issues. In the film, Jane draws on her decades of research and highlights uplifting stories from across time and space that will inspire viewers to protect the earth that we live on. The film showcases Jane’s four pillars that signal hope for the future: the amazing human intellect, the resilience of nature, the power and dedication of young people and the indomitable human spirit.

“We are delighted to partner with Science North to distribute this incredible, educational and inspirational documentary based on Jane Goodall’s philosophy of hope. Now more than ever we must inspire audiences to remain hopeful and conserve the world around us. Jane Goodall: Reasons for Hope is perfectly aligned with our mission to change audience perception of the universe in ways never imagined,” said Cosmic Picture President of Distribution, Antonietta Monteleone.

The film features stories such as the Northern Bald Ibis’ migration over the Alps, the re-introduction of the American Bison by the Blackfeet Nation, the remarkable Sudbury Regreening Story and inspiring youth-led initiatives involved in Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots that align with historic footage of Jane’s beginnings as a chimpanzee researcher.

“Giving audiences hope that the biodiversity crisis can be solved is a hugely important piece of any museum’s mission. With this film we will help inspire children to believe that nature can be saved,” said George Duffield, co-founder of Cosmic Picture.
