This is the true story of a Bohemian "St. Francis" 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. They became the source of his first book, a Random House, hardcover best-seller in 2004.

We are happy to be showing this film in conjunction with the Tofino Shorebird Festival, 2011.

The Misfortunates
(2010, Com, Belgium, 108 min, Rated 14A)
In Flemish - aka “La Merditude des Choses”
Directed by Felix van Groeningen

I’ve scoured the globe for a hilarious comedy, and this film really stood out. Gunther Strobbe is a 13 year old who lives with his alcoholic father and three uncles. Their hearts are in the right place – but they seem to turn everything around them into disaster. They enter drinking contests, ride bicycles naked, teach vulgar songs to little girls and end up in hospital, then head right back to the bar the next day. Gunther is an observer in this broken home that reeks of cigarette smoke, spilled beer and sweat-stained clothes.

“A mad Flemish film that must be seen to be believed. So see it. ”— John Griffin, The Gazette

Nominated for Best Foreign Language film at the Oscars; special prize at Cannes!
