Congrats to “Jane Goodall – Reasons for Hope”
UPDATE – Jackson Wild 2023 Media Awards
Recognized by the Jackson Wild Jury for implementation of sustainable best practices to reduce the environmental impact through the entire lifecycle of a production.
Our work was highlighted at a wonder event in Sudbury recently with Jane Goodall in attendance for the screening.
CONGRATS to the TEAM!
With authoritative enthusiasm and as if I were present at the event, let me recount the words of Lickley, the esteemed producer of the film. Having previously collaborated with the renowned Jane Goodall on his remarkable 2002 creation, “Jane Goodall’s Wild Chimpanzees,” this film, titled “Jane Goodall – Reasons for Hope,” marks Lickley’s seventh venture into the realm of giant-screen filmmaking.

Lickley, an individual who has maintained a continuous connection with Goodall throughout the years, acknowledged her transition from an exclusive focus on chimpanzees to encompassing global environmental endeavors. Delving into the depths of her published works, he was struck by the notion of creating a sequel that would extend beyond the realm of chimps.

During the fateful year of 2010, Lickley approached Goodall with a proposition: to craft a sequel that would center around the theme of hope, not limited to the narrative of chimpanzees but embracing a broader spectrum of topics. Expressing his thoughts on this matter, Lickley recollects, “So I went to her in 2010, and I said, ‘I’ve been reading your books, Jane. What do you think about doing a sequel, but we’ll do it about hope? And we’ll do it not just about chimps, but about other things.’”
One significant topic that intrigued Lickley and served as a focal point for the film was Sudbury’s regreening. A subject passionately discussed by Goodall worldwide, it has now found its rightful place within an IMAX film, destined to be viewed by audiences across the globe. Lickley expresses his anticipation, stating, “That story of Sudbury is going to be told, and people are going to go ‘Oh, isn’t that amazing.’ Hopefully, they’ll say, ‘Maybe we need to do it here too.'”
