Description

Expected to be in attendance: Producer Jeffrey Star and Director Richard Miron

Richard Miron's surprising and empathetic FOR THE BIRDS follows an unusual woman named Kathy, who lives with 200 pet chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys. What starts as a story seemingly about Kathy's battle with local animal-advocacy groups slowly transforms into an intimate drama about her relationship with her husband Gary, and the toll the birds have taken on not only their marriage, but Kathy's well-being.

Filmed over the course of five years, this sensitive tale of one woman's world breaking down is poignant and absorbing in equal measure, but its message is ultimately one of hope about the possibility of regaining one's life.
