Do you feel plucky? We invite you to join us for a very special fundraising event for the Ojai Film Society, sponsored by Wachter Hay and Grain and featuring an after-show “cock-tail” party in the Ojai Art Center gallery room. Wing on over for a great time!
You will laugh, cry, clap and crow for each chicken to win at the Ohio National Poultry Show in the beguiling documentary, “Chicken People.” This real-life “Best in Show” for the feathered set is directed by Nicole Lucas Haimes, and follows a trio of competitors as they breed and raise exotic chickens with a mixture of passion, love, obsession and patient planning. Haimes has found the perfect subjects in these dedicated breeders; they are warm, quirky and open. Following both their struggles and triumphs, Chicken People is a “. . . doc made almost entirely for ‘edutainment’ purposes with no overt political agenda, and it will have you laughing and learning something new about chickens that you never thought you’d need or want to know.’” Edward Douglas, Film Journal International
