Pandas in Love

Short Film Germany 2022
By: Elena Pilar Nyffeler

Jonathan Wu is the world's best panda breeder - Nele, on the other hand, can't even get her own life together. The two couldn't be more different: he's introverted and withdrawn, she's full of rage at the world and always ready to make it known. The only thing they have in common is loneliness. But as fate would have it, the two meet in the Frisian pampas, between a zoo and a golfer's paradise. And just as it is with pandas, so it is with Jonathan and Nele: at first sight it is decided whether the two are destined for each other or will avoid each other forever.
