The female California brown pelican found wandering down the Golden Gate Bridge is starving, viewers discover in Pelicans Dream, a must-watch documentary—despite the occasional grim moments—for anyone who’s marveled at the sight of these flying dinosaurs. The footage comes from the cameras of Judy Irving, whose The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill went analog viral when it was released in 2005. The rescue and recovery of the Bay Area pelican—nicknamed Gigi—is the framework for this deep dive into how we imperil the survival of the birds. It’s also a paean to the men and women who care for the unfortunate ones at places like our own International Bird Rescue facility in San Pedro. Irving will be on hand for a Q&A after the screening.
