Saturday, September 12th, 3:30pm: Pelican Dreams

Sundance-and-Emmy-Award-winning filmmaker Judy Irving (with her first film since the widely acclaimed and loved “The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill”) follows a wayward 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 of these ancient birds, sometimes referred to as the flying dinosaurs. The film is about wildness, and asks the following questions: 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, stars “Gigi” (for Golden Gate) and Morro (a backyard pelican with an injured wing).

Testimonials

  • We just reserved The Conscious Nest facility for a 65th Birthday Celebration for my sister. We had many relatives attend what turned out to be a wonderful event. The accommodations were superb. Ally was a wonderful hostess who made sure that our every need was met. The parking was more than ample. The building is beautiful inside and out. The grounds are well manicured. The kitchen contained everything that we needed. We had more than enough tables and chairs. We also had room to have Diana Hadley (Cartoon Portraits By Blondie) set up shop and draw her very special portraits of each of our party guests. All-in-all we could not have picked a better venue for our party. A GREAT time was had by all. We can't wait to schedule The Conscious Nest for our next event.
