The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill

December 14, 2015, 7:00 PM


One of the most wildly loved films of the recent independent American Cinema — and of audiences at MIFF, who gave it their Award for Best film at the festival when it debuted in 2004 — The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill is the true story of a Bohemian St. Francis and his remarkable relationship with a flock of wild red-and-green parrots. Mark Bittner, a “dharma bum” and former street musician in San Francisco, discovers the flock as he searches for meaning in his life, unaware that the wild parrots will bring him everything he needs. Not only “gorgeous” (New York Times) but “that rare documentary that has romance, comedy and a surprise ending that makes you feel as if you could fly out of the theater” (San Jose Mercury News). (G, 87 min., 2005)
