When I invited my friend Xi Zhinong’s latest documentary, Mystery Monkeys of Shangri-La, to Asia Society for a pre-PBS Nature broadcast theatrical screening on the Earth Day in 2015, I knew this film will remain a piece of gem. This past week, I learned that it received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Nature Programming. I am proud I helped bring this project to American audiences on three occasions, once in New York and twice in Washington, D.C.

两天前收到好消息,说奚志农老师的新片《香格里拉的神秘金丝猴》获得了艾美奖提名(杰出自然类节目单元),非常为野性中国的团队感到骄傲。这是完全由中国本土团队完成筹划和拍摄的,后期剪辑是一个英国剪辑师和美国PBS电视台的合璧之作,堪称一绝。影片让人完全没有普通的动物世界的感觉,而是把观众带入了一个像人一样的家庭世界,两只金丝猴幼崽的不同成长经历也爱恨交加,在给观众带来眼泪和笑声的同时赞美家庭的美好。我也有幸把该片三次带给了美国观众,在纽约亚洲协会的总部放映正值2015年地球日,随后又在华盛顿特区跟观众两次见面,其中一次是在中国驻美国大使馆;随后的4月29日在美国PBS电视台Nature栏目首映。
