Opening this Friday: Pelican Dreams, a film by Judy Irving
A project six years in the making!
In a story of friendship, survival and the spirit of flight, filmmaker 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. International Bird Rescue is proud to have its work and mission prominently featured in the film.
Pelican Dreams (Rated G, 80 min.) premieres on October 24 in San Francisco, Berkeley and San Rafael, CA. The documentary opens in New York and Los Angeles on November 7 and nationwide soon after. For a theater near you, visit PelicanDreams.com.
