SAVING PELICAN 895

DIRECTOR: IRENE TAYLOR BRODSKY - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(DOC) Brodsky’s new film tells the gripping story of the rescue of pelican “LA 895”—one of the oiled bird victims of BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill—by the Fort Jackson Oiled Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Louisiana. Neither a story that compounds the horrors we already know about our nation’s worst oil disaster nor a treatise on oil production or consumption, SAVING PELICAN 895 is the tale of a single animal and the compassionate people deployed to save him, showing how the process of saving one life restored a degree of humanity for the rest of us.

Screening follows SPOIL.

SPOIL

DIRECTOR: TRIP JENNINGS - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(DOC) SPOIL follows the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP) and the Gitga’at First Nation people of British Columbia in their search for the elusive spirit bear. All white but not albino and rarer than the panda, the spirit bear lives only in the Great Bear Rainforest on the north coast of British Columbia, a place at risk from a proposed oil pipeline. In an effort to oppose the pipeline, the ILCP’s mission is to create images of this rare bear and the unique ecosystem that it relies on. (44 mins.)

QUEEN OF THE SUN: WHAT ARE THE BEES TELLING US?

DIRECTOR: TAGGERT SIEGEL - OREGON (PORTLAND)

(DOC) In 1923, Rudolf Steiner, scientist, philosopher, and social innovator, predicted that in 80 to 100 years, honeybees would collapse. His prediction has come true with Colony Collapse Disorder, where bees are disappearing in mass numbers from their hives with no clear single explanation. QUEEN OF THE SUN examines the dire global bee crisis through the eyes of biodynamic beekeepers, scientists, farmers, and philosophers. On a pilgrimage around the world, the film unveils 10,000 years of beekeeping, highlighting how our historic and sacred relationship with bees has been lost due to highly mechanized industrial practices.

FREEDOM ON THE FENCE

DIRECTOR: ANDREA MARKS - OREGON (CORVALLIS)

NOBODY CARES

DIRECTOR: TRAVIS SWARTZ - IDAHO (BOISE)

(NAR) Bob Rockefeller (not those Rockefellers) has 8.5 days to live, and nobody cares. Passed over for promotion at work, his marriage slipping through his fingers, and his only true friends a pair of loyal guinea pigs, Bob suddenly realizes he wants just one thing before he goes: to be loved. Upon the advice of his psychiatrist whose methods are questionable at best, Bob sets out on a comedic odyssey to turn his life around. With ebullient wit and a rarefied charm, NOBODY CARES explores the thin line between self-confidence and self-delusion.
