The Screen Guide

Wang Wang and Funi two giant panda from China became a media sensation in November 2009 when Adelaide zoo brought the pair to Australia. This one hour documentary follows the Australian team through the long panda negotiation with China. The language barrier, travel delays and complicated paperwork all conspire to keep the pandas from boarding their plane. Wang Wang and Funi capture the hearts of the zoo team and then the country as we follow their journey from the humble highlands of China to be greeted by a hungry paparazzi in Australia.
