EVENT DETAILS:  Fly Away Home (1996) PG

Jim Ball suggested this movie as the first in an April Ecologically Themed movie series.  It raises interesting questions about human responsibilities for the natural world that we disrupt and destroy. – Randy


IMDB includes this summary of the movie:


Amy is only 13 years old when her mother is killed in an auto wreck in New Zealand. She goes to Canada to live with her father, an eccentric inventor whom she barely knows. Amy is miserable in her new life...that is until she discovers a nest of goose eggs that were abandoned when developers began tearing up a local forest. The eggs hatch and Amy becomes "Mama Goose". The young birds must fly south for the winter, but who will lead them there? With a pair of ultralight airplanes, Amy, her dad and their friends must find a way to do it. Written by Martin Lewison


The Zoom link for the movie showing is included below.  I look forward to showing this movie and the discussion.




Randy Best (he,him) is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
