Event description

Description

This is the fifth screening of "Monty and Rose" - !

"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 including 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. "Monty and Rose" is an independent project, funded through the generous support of backers on Kickstarter. Partners in the project include Turnstone Strategies, Wenkus Productions, Free Spirit Media (Pat Nabong) and Eileen Wagner Design. Music is by local indie favorites Congress of Starlings.

Please stay on hand after the screening for a Q&A session and reflections on the Summer of the Plover in 2019!
