Pandas: An IMAX 3D Experience

IMAX 3D | G | 45min | Released: April 6, 2018

Documentary

At Chengdu Panda Base in China, scientists are dedicated to protecting the species by breeding adult Giant Pandas in order to introduce cubs into the wild. This film follows one such researcher, whose passion leads her to initiate a new technique inspired by a black bear program in rural New Hampshire. What starts as a cross-culture collaboration becomes a life-changing journey for an American biologist who crosses an ocean to join her; a scientist from Inner Mongolia; and a very curious female cub named Qian Qian, born in captivity. Captured with IMAX Cameras, join Qian Qian on an exciting new adventure in the mountains of Sichuan as she takes her first steps outside her protected habitat, discovering her true animal nature… even as she faces the challenges of the unknown. Pandas is directed by nature filmmakers David Douglas and Drew Fellman, of Born to be Wild and Island of Lemurs: Madagascar previously.
