Born in China

(G) Age 6+ Na­ture doc­u­men­tary has gor­geous vis­tas, mo­ments of peril.

“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. Al­though 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 one an­other and 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. (79 min­utes)
