wild parrots

I used to spend ages going to the different websites each week to check out the movies; it was really frustrating. But recently i have come across a website , this web page features all the cinemas in Auckland.

My favorite movie of the week is 'The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill'. The documentary is set in San Francisco and centers around a man named Mark, who developed a friendship with a group of parrots. For 15 years he was on the street trying to make a career of music, but realizes that his dream won't become a reality. He gets a job working as a caretaker on Telegraph Hill and is taken with a group of parrots. Mark names each individual parrot and tracks their lives. He discovers many of life meaning within the relationships of the parrots. It would have to be one of my favorite movies this year, the 2nd being 'The Grizzly Man'. Check out to read his online diary.
