Green Film Fest audiences will remember the wonderful sneak preview of Pelican Dreams as a work-in-progress screening in 2012. We're thrilled that the film is now complete and hits the big screen this month at a cinema near you!
What's it like to try to get to know a flying dinosaur? Filmmaker Judy Irving (The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill) follows a wayward California brown pelican from her "arrest" on the Golden Gate Bridge into care at a wildlife rehabilitation facility, and from there explores pelicans' nesting grounds, Pacific coast migration, and survival challenges.The film is about wildness: how close can we get to a wild animal without taming or harming it? Why do we need wildness in our lives, and how can we protect it?
Tickets are available now for the World Premiere on October 24 at the Balboa Theatre, San Francisco, and Elmwood Theater, Berkeley.
