The film series co-sponsored by the Sierra Club and Coalition for Change continues at the Cozmic Cafe on the second Wednesday of each month.
“Winged Migration” is the selection for Dec. 11.
“We thought we would change it up a bit for the holiday season,” said Patty Wilson of Coalition for Change. ‘Winged Migration’ follows migratory birds through 40 countries and all seven continents.
“This film will make your heart soar,” continued Wilson. “It is nature photography at its best.”
The ingenious crew took four years flying alongside, above, below and in front of these amazing animals in order to capture the migratory flights of nearly 25 bird species.
“This film has all the elements of a blockbuster movie; murder, sex, drama, tragedy, birth, family time and the never-ending fight for survival. It is humorous, sad and poignant,” said Wilson.
Using no special effects and almost no narration, the critically acclaimed documentary follows migratory birds through such diverse landscapes as the Arctic, the Amazon, Paris, New York City and the American Southwest.
Seating for the film at the Cozmic Café, 594 Main St. in Placerville, begins at 6 p.m. with the movie starting at 6:30 p.m.
Food service at the Cozmic ends at 6 p.m. so come early if you want to grab something to eat before the movie.
A donation of $3 is suggested to help cover the cost of the room rental. In keeping with the generous spirit of the holidays, one half of the proceeds from this screening will be donated to the El Dorado Food Bank.
“We have a great line up of significant, acclaimed films slated for 2014. We feel these documentaries, which are generally not shown in local theaters, fill a niche in our community,” said Bob Johnson of the Sierra Club.
The new year will kick off with a screening of “Genetic Roulette” on Jan. 22. The film will be two weeks later than usual due to a visit by the Tibetan Monks to the Cozmic Café.
