"The Journey Home" is a nice but short documentary film about the breeding program in China that's trying to increase the population of panda--both in captivity and in the wild. The Panda Center goes to amazing lengths to do this but the funniest is watching workers dressing up in giant panda suits (with urine and feces on them so they smell more panda-like) working among the animals so that the pandas WON'T be habituated towards people and will have a greater chance of survival in the wild. I would REALLY hate to have that job!! In addition, throughout the film you'll see tons of adorable pandas and panda babies. It's all very charming and well made and worth seeing. My only complaint is that it's way too short and really is a bit more superficial than I would have liked.
