Editor's Note
Shot in IMAX 3D, David Lickley's 40-minute documentary BORN TO BE WILD observes various orphaned jungle animals and their day-to-day behavioral interactions with the individuals who rescue them and raise them to adulthood. The film unfurls in two separate geographic spheres. Half of it takes place in the rain forests of Borneo, where celebrated primatologist Dr. Birute Galdikas assists baby orangutans; the other half takes place on the arid savannahs of Kenya, where zoologist Dame Daphne Sheldrick works with baby elephant calves. The goal, in each case, is not simply rehabilitation but the ultimate return of these animals to the wild, where (it is hoped) they will function freely and independently. Oscar-winner Morgan Freeman narrates; Drew Fellman produced and authored the script.

What happens when the circle of life -- the one triumphantly celebrated at the start of Disney's The Lion King - needs a human cog to keep the wheel turning That's the central question asked and answered by David Lickley's Born to Be Wild, a 3D nature film making its way to IMAX screens across the nation. Narrator Morgan Freeman (you were expecting, maybe, Gilbert Gottfried?) describes this story as a fairy tale, though one whose storybook ending remains in question. Whether it's happy or sad is up to us, but more on that in a second....read the full review
