ICA is proud to present a free screening of Monty and Rose with filmmaker Bob Dolgan. Join us for a Q&A with Dolgan and a reflective conversation with the rest of the audience.

Monty and Rose tells the story of a pair of endangered piping plovers that successfully nested at Chicago’s Montrose Beach in the summer of 2019, the first of the species to nest in Chicago in 64 years. The short, independent documentary chronicles these special birds and an unpredictable series of events included a proposed music festival that propelled the birds to national headlines. Monty and Rose features interviews with an array of key players in the story, including biologists, birders, volunteers and the advocates who spoke out when the music festival was proposed.

He has 20 years of experience in journalism, marketing and nonprofit management. Bob initiated the Monty and Rose documentary project as a volunteer for the Plover Watch effort at Montrose Beach in the summer of 2019.
