Thursday To-See: "Passenger Pigeons"

Posted By on Thu, Jun 3, 2010 at 11:24 AM



“PASSENGER PIGEONS”
Dir.: Martha Stephens, 106 min.


Poignant in the shadow of the recent West Virginia coal mine deaths, “Passenger Pigeons” interweaves four different stories surrounding an accidental death of a young man in an Appalachian mine: his brother, driving cross-country for the burial; two coal company executives, sent to inspect the mine, who end up camping in the woods; a young, concerned couple on vacation during the closure, and activists from Washington, D.C., in town to protest a mountaintop removal. The trailer is a series of brief vignettes culled from the film, soundtracked by live recording of a primitive Baptist gospel quartet. If that's any indication of the feel of the movie as a whole, expect a fantastic, clever one.

"Passenger Pigeons" plays at 5:15 p.m. at Riverdale screen #2.
