Beijing Museum of Natural History exhibit highlights feathered dinosaurs and early birds, along with 4D film "Black Feather Elf" (in Chinese)

More  on the film "Black Feather Elf" [Heiyu Jingling]  (in Chinese)

rough translation from link below

"Microraptor" is the protagonist of  the scientific 4D special effects film "Black Feather Elf" that recently premiered in Beijing Museum of Natural History... This is the museum's first 4D movie produced.

    ' "Black Feather Elf" has Microraptor for the protagonist, the inspirational story of an "ugly duckling" to "Black Swan,"....but also showing the world-class achievements that Chinese scientists have made in the field of feathered dinosaurs. The film recreates the early Cretaceous of western Liaoning Province ecological environment, but also allows the audience to appreciate the charm of four-winged dinosaur flight, with the support of many famous dinosaur researchers in the production process.'

Chinese *jingling* can be translated variously as "spirit, demon, elf, goblin, wizard"
