A Story of Friendship, Survival and the Beauty of Flight

A Story of Friendship, Survival and the Beauty of FlightIn this intimate portrait of an iconic seabird species, filmmaker Judy Irving (The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill, an Indie smash hit!) follows a wayward, starving 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? Pelican Dreams stars “Gigi” (for Golden Gate) and “Morro” (a backyard pelican with an injured wing), as well as the wildlife professionals who care for them.

Rated: G, 80 min.
