An immersive experience set against sweeping views of the mountains of Sichuan, Pandas illuminates cross-cultural cooperation as a vital tool for saving endangered animal species. This cute-umentary follows young giant panda Qian Qian as she takes the first steps outside of her protected habitat and discovers her true animal nature, all the while facing the challenges of the unknown.
At Chengdu Research Base in China, researchers are dedicated to protecting and breeding adult giant pandas in order to introduce cubs to the wild. This movie spotlights one of these scientists, whose passion leads her to initiate a new technique inspired by an American black bear rehabilitator in New Hampshire. Join her on an awe-inspiring and aww-inspiring journey as she works to expand the wild panda population, starting with fearless, fluffy leader Qian Qian.
