BURLINGTONGREEN CONTINUES THEIR 2018 ECO-FILM FESTIVAL WITH JANE

Burlington, ON – On Thursday, May 17th, BurlingtonGreen, in partnership with Burlington Central Library and Halton Green Screens, will present JANE, the second of five acclaimed films in their 2018 Eco-Film Festival series.

Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, JANE offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall - a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world's most admired conservationists.

“Transcends the boundaries of both nature films and biographies. Its epic elements of adventure, romance, and spiritual connection possess a sweep equal to any narrative film. Wondrous, moving, and truly stirring portrait that puts us right there with Goodall to share in her discoveries, propelled by the majestic sounds of  Philip Glass. This is a truly stirring legacy portrait.”
-David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

“BurlingtonGreen was honoured to bring Dr. Jane Goodall to Burlington in 2012 to inspire two sold-out audiences, and thus it is extra exciting for us to present this film as part of our year-long eco-film series”, said Amy Schnurr, Executive Director of BurlingtonGreen.

Space is limited and filling up quickly. Visit www.burlingtongreen.org to RSVP and view the film trailer.

When: Thursday, May 17, 2018
Time: Doors open at 6:00pm with film beginning at 6:30pm sharp - Event concludes at 8:30pm
Where: Centennial Hall, Burlington Central Library, 2331 New Street
Cost: $5 per person (free for BurlingtonGreen members)
BONUS! Free raffle with great eco-prizes!
