Large Format IMAX® Film (2002)
Science Museum of Minnesota and Science North
Released in 2002, Jane Goodall’s Wild Chimpanzees IMAX film is a Science North production, produced and directed by our own David Lickley. It’s a giant screen journey into the hearts, minds and world of wild chimpanzees with the world’s most famous field researcher, Dr. Jane Goodall. The film chronicles Dr. Goodall’s more than 40 years of legendary work among the chimps of Gombe Park on Lake Tanganyka in Africa.
Viewers are led by Dr. Goodall and a new generation of young researchers into the daily lives of the now famous Gombe chimp families; Fifi and sons Freud and the turbulent alpha male Frodo, along with Gremlin, Gaia and the endearing Galahad.
Science North also developed a travelling exhibit to accompany the large format film. Discovering Chimpanzees: The Remarkable World of Jane Goodall complements the film by offering an array of multimedia experiences, interactive exhibits and programs which give visitors the opportunity to further explore the amazing world of chimpanzees, their primate relatives and the work of Jane Goodall.
Together, the film and exhibit offer visitors a memorable and moving portrait of one of the twentieth century’s great scientific legacies.
