Family Flicks Film Series: The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill

Sunday Sep 21, 2014 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM This is a past program

Recommended for ages 8+* 

Mingus, a parrot who prefers to stay indoors and bop to music, and Connor, a blue-crowned conure and outsider to the flock, are just two of the personalities in this colorful portrait of tropical parrots who live in San Francisco’s Telegraph Hill and the gently eccentric dreamer who tends to them. (2003, 35mm, Dir. J. Irving, 83 min.) 

*All ages are welcome. Feel free to take a break with infants and toddlers in the theater lobby where the films are simulcast on a large monitor. 

Family Flicks Film Series

UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hammer Museum have teamed up for a matinee screening series of new and classic family-friendly films from around the world.

Hammer Kids is made possible through the generosity of the Anthony & Jeanne Pritzker Family Foundation.

Hammer Kids has also received funding from supporters and friends of the Hammer Museum’s Kids’ Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), an annual family fundraiser. Additional support has been provided by Resnick Foundation, The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, and the Art4Moore Fund of the Tides Foundation.
