Born to be WildBorn to be Wild tells the story of two women who have dedicated their lives to rescuing orphaned orang-utans and elephants and then returning them into the wild. Shot in 3D, especially for the Imax, we travel back and forth from Borneo to Kenya experiencing vivid big screen scenery and heart-warming stories, watching their lives and enjoying their triumphs.
The film is peppered with funny and poignant moments that filled the audience with laughter and smiles. It is a wholly positive movie which children of all ages could enjoy, and at 40 minutes in length it doesn’t outstay its welcome. The stories mirror each other, we see young orphaned elephants and orang-utans rescued and taken into care, their considered and humane treatment and their eventual return to the wild.
There is a strong message of conservation and respect throughout Born to be Wild, and the love and extraordinary effort they all maintain shines through.  We were left with smiles on our faces and happy hearts.

Born to be Wild opens at BFI IMAX on 17 June and Science Museum IMAX on 2 July. For screenings around the UK visit http://www.bfi.org.uk/whatson/bfi_around_the_uk
