Poles Apart

In big cities it's easy to feel isolated, especially if you're Pang Pang who is the only panda in a city of polar bears. His attempts to fit in always end in failure. What's it going to take to make these polar bears realise that Pang Pang is just another kind of bear?

Poles Apart is an awards winning and nominated short film within Australia and overseas. It is a student film created by Sen Wong, Steven Smith and Paul Lalo from Griffith Film School.
