From frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest, filmmaker Lu Chuan follows the adventures of three animal families in China: the majestic panda, the savvy golden monkey and the elusive snow leopard.
Parents need to know that Born in China is a fascinating nature documentary. Narrated by John Krasinski, it follows a rarely seen snow leopard fighting to feed her young in one of the harshest environments on earth, a golden monkey struggling after being cast out by his family, and a doting giant panda helping her cub become independent. While it’s family friendly overall and promotes messages related to courage and family, there are scenes of animals in peril and fighting for survival and death that could be scary for very little or sensitive kids. The harsh realities of living in the wild include seeing a baby monkey being swept up by a hawk, animals viciously attacking each other, the death of an animal mother. But older kids and parents will likely be interested in seeing this remote part of the world and its inhabitants.
