EarthxFilm: Free Film Screening 'Bird of Prey' - Dallas
The Philippine Monkey Eating Eagle is a creature of both arresting beauty and staggering power. This jungle denizen is also one of the rarest raptors on the planet - just 700 individuals remain — its fate threatened by logging, hunting and other human activities. In 1977, cinematographer and raptor specialist Neil Rettig traveled to the Philippines to capture the first filmed images of the eagle in the wild, an effort that helped catapult the bird into a national symbol. Bird of Prey follows Rettig as he returns to the island nation 40 years later. This time, he is determined to re-establish the bird not as a vanishing relic, but as a thriving symbol of the Philippines’ future.
This Movie Monday screening will feature a Q&A with the stars of the film, Neil and Laura Rettig. The screening will kick off with a special live raptor demonstration by bird conservationists Window to the Wild.
