Movie Night: San Francisco - Still Wild at Heart

Award winning documentary, San Francisco—Still Wild At Heart, is a virtual case study of the arrival of coyotes in our urban communities. This film has been described as "uplifting, lyrical, moving" and "an absolute treasure of a film."

Unfolding first in San Francisco, the film follows the story of the coyote across the national canvas—to New York City's Central Park; to Chicago, where more than 2,000 coyotes live today; and to rural California, where sheep ranchers find promise in innovative non-lethal predator control methods to protect their livestock.

Here is a link to the film's trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNeBBfStBRE

A discussion with Brent Plater of the Wild Equity Institute will follow the film. The Wild Equity Institute is a San Francisco non-profit working to unite grassroots conservation and environmental justice movements in campaigns that build a healthy and sustainable global community for people and the plants and animals that accompany us on Earth.

Light refreshments will be available. I am super excited to use my newly acquired (from freecycle) air popcorn popper. Bonus points if you bring your own reusable bowl. And the fine folks from The Fizzary have kindly agreed to donate soda.

The Wild Equity Institute office is a short walking distance from the 16th Street BART Station and several Muni bus lines. Please visit 511.org to plan your route.

About the filmmaker: Melissa Peabody’s credits include Turner Broadcasting (Dolphins In Danger) and an Animal Planet 13-part series (Wyland’s Ocean World), as well as many other documentaries for international TV broadcast. She is the executive producer and owner of Living World Films LLC.
