A BIRDER’S GUIDE TO EVERYTHING IS PLAYING AT THE SMITH RAFAEL FILM CENTER
Science on Screen 2021 kicks off with Rob Meyer’s 2013 indie film A BIRDER’S GUIDE TO EVERYTHING featuring Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ben Kingsley and Katie Chang. The film follows a band of high school bird enthusiasts on a wilderness quest to identify a rare duck believed to be extinct, and their unexpected competition with a group of older birders looking to take credit for the teenagers’ find. Rated PG-13 Director: Rob Meyer (US 2013) 86 min.
The film will be followed by a conversation with Mark Dettling, an Avian Ecologist with Point Blue Conservation Science.
Mark Dettling’s work with Point Blue involves researching birds in the riparian ecosystems of coastal California and training young field biologists at the Palomarin Field Station in the Point Reyes National Seashore. His passion for birds began in his home state of Michigan, where he graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering, before earning a master’s degree in Natural Resources at Cornell University. He has worked for Point Blue in various locations around California since 2006.
