ABOUT THE BIRDWATCHER:
THE BIRDWATCHER is the story of Saffron, a single mother of two, who after being diagnosed with cancer, embarks on a journey to re-connect with her estranged birth mother in the hopes of finding a home for her children when she is gone.
This special screening, sponsored by the BCFED’s Women’s Rights Committee for BCFED Affiliates, has been designed to bring attention to the gender inequality that affects wages and working conditions for our sisters working in media industries in BC and nationally; to promote attendance at a film that has been created with women in top decision-making positions; and to show solidarity with women globally who are under-represented both on and off screen and whose stories are rarely told.
