Pelicandreams

a story of friendship, survival and the beauty of flight.

Pelican MediaFilmmaker Judy Irving (The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill) 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, a theatrical feature, stars “Gigi” (for Golden Gate) and Morro (a backyard pelican with an injured wing).

Pelican Dreams premieres on October 24, 2014, in San Francisco, Berkeley and San Rafael, CA. The documentary opens in New York and Los Angeles on November 7. For a theater near you, view the scheduled opening dates in the right-hand column.

“Like [the wild parrots of telegraph hill], Irving’s study of brown pelicans is affectionate, at times humorous and reveals a sense of wonder and awe at the birds’ simple beauty.” — Carolyn Jones, San Francisco Chronicle
