While on a press trip to San Francisco, I was given the opportunity to attend a screening of Disneynature BORN IN CHINA. Given my admiration for monkeys, pandas and leopards, this was a film I couldn’t wait to see …and it gave me hope that my husband would one day agree to adopting a pet monkey! (I’m only half joking.)
BORN IN CHINA is an interesting documentary, taking an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured. The film follows the stories of three animal families, transporting audiences to some of the most extreme environments on Earth to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film.
You’ll see a doting panda bear mother guide her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence, a two-year-old golden monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister (and later joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts), and a mother snow leopard who faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet.
BORN IN CHINA opens in U.S. theaters on April 21, just in time for Earth Day 2017. Moviegoers who see BORN IN CHINA during its opening week (April 21-27, 2017) will benefit the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Based on opening-week attendance, Disneynature, via the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, will make a contribution to the WWF to help protect wild pandas and snow leopards in China.
