Venue: Atlas Performing Arts Center


Meet Lou. Abandoned in a foreclosed home, Lou is one of thousands of parrots in need of rescue. From the wilds of Costa Rica to suburban America, a lovable, quirky cast of parrots will reveal their unforgettable tales and the bittersweet world they share with humans. Their keen intelligence and uncanny ability to communicate in any language has made parrots one of the world’s most popular pets. But unlike dogs and cats, parrots have not been domesticated. With high decibel squawks and complex behavior, they are hardwired for the wild. A lifespan of more than 70 years, an intense need to bond and a life in captivity doesn’t always add up to a happy ending. With shelters and sanctuaries struggling to meet the demand, too many birds like Lou have no place to go. Written and produced by Allison Argo.

Discussion with filmmaker Allison Argo follows screening.
