The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >
Directed by Judy Irving
Documentary • 83 minutes • USA

The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill is the true story of a Bohemian man and his remarkable relationship with a flock of wild green-and-red parrots. Mark Bittner, a dharma bum, a homeless street musician in San Francisco, falls in with the flock as he searches for meaning in his life, unaware that the wild parrots will bring him everything he needs.
Filmmaker Judy Irving is a Sundance-and-Emmy-Award-winning filmmaker. Her recent six-film documentary series about the San Francisco Bay Area’s wildlife and open space led to her interest in the wild parrot flock flying the city’s north waterfront.
There is a delightful and whimsical quality to The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill as we watch wild birds befriend a wild man for a great symbiotic relationship.

Both filmmaker Judy Irving and quirky San Francisco personality Mark Bittner will be offering a Q & A after the showing of the film. They will also be participating in the “Filmmakers Symposium” on Sunday from 1:30-3:00 at COS-Ford Theater.
