Animals in the Moving Image: A Documentary Film Series

The Stanford Environmental Humanities Project presents Animals in the Moving Image: A Documentary Film Series.  Please join us for an evening of documentary films exploring the complex relationships between humans and animals. Refreshments will be served. 
The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill (Judy Irving, 2005, 83 minutes) 
The true story of a Bohemian St. Francis and his remarkable relationship with a flock of wild green-and-red parrots. Mark Bittner, a homeless street musician in San Francisco, falls in with the flock as he searches for meaning in his life, unaware that the wild parrots will bring him everything he needs. The film celebrates urban wildness, Bohemian and avian, and links the parrots' antics to human behavior.
Q&A with the filmmaker following the screening.

Last Stop in Santa Rosa (Elizabeth Lo, 2013, 5 minutes)
