Blog post by Sarah Lockwood, Cinema & Photography '15, FLEFF Intern, Blairstown, NJ
This evening's weekly intern FLEFF class features some very special guests. Two men stand in front of us to give a presentation about their film, Scavenger Hunt. Filmmaking and biology, united under a common cause.
Their names? Matt Poldolsky and Eddie Chung.
Their topic? The highly endangered California Condor.
Some quick Condor facts from our speakers:
The film is about this issue, as well as "the vast political spectrum that has erupted as a result of the recognition of this issue."
Their zeal for these birds is evident just from the careful care with which they present photographs and statistics. Both men a eager to share their combined enthusiasm of filmmaking and science with all who attend their screening.
"This isn't just condors... It's wider than just the condors." It's about all scavenging species.
Come see Scavenger Hunt's FLEFF debut Thursday, March 29th, 7:00PM at Cinemapolis.
