Description

Telegraph Hill is a neighbourhood in one of the hillier sections of San Francisco that over the years has become home to a large flock of wild parrots. While no one is certain how they got there, the birds were for the most part left to their own devices until discovered by Mark Bittner. A street musician and self-described "Dharma bum", Bittner had no practical background in ornithology when he first encountered the parrots, but it wasn't long before he developed a close bond with them and took it upon himself to feed and care for the birds, and even gave many of them names. Bittner's friendship with the parrots became a growing experience that taught the guitarist as much about himself as it did about the birds, and with the passage of time, his work earned him the respect of his community as well as a home.
The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill is a superlative documentary which recounts the story of the engaging and articulate Bittner and his birds, as well as an unexpected twist of fate which added a poignant note to their tale. Wise and tender in its treatment of relationships - between birds, between people, and between birds and people, this will charm those who loved March of the Penguins.
