MCCposterHighResCLUCK to host Mad City Chickens

Sacramento, California- The Campaign to Legalize Urban Chicken Keeping (CLUCK), in conjunction with Movies on a Big Screen at the Guild, is hosting showings of indie documentary sensation, Mad City Chickens, on August 7th at 7:00 P.M., 9:30 P.M. and August 9th at 7:00 P.M.  Both showings on the 7th will feature a post-screening discussion with filmmakers Tashai Lovington & Robert Lughai.  The Guild Theatre is located at 2828 35th Street, Sacramento CA 95817. 

Witness if you will Gallus Domesticus…the backyard chicken. A mere few pounds of feather, bone, and muscle; a creature regarded by many as a rather humorous, though not so intelligent agent of food production.

And yet make note of a most singular phenomenon now taking shape across suburb and city. From backyard eggs to the family’s new favorite pet, the urban chicken is forging a fresh place in the pecking order of human importance.

Mad City Chickens deftly weaves multiple stories and contextual issues on city chickens and their keepers in a non-linear fashion that one rarely sees in a documentary. From leading experts to urban newbies, experience the humor and heart of what’s fast becoming an international backyard chicken movement.

We’ll try to attend a screening.

By the way, we own three ducks over the river in West Sac. I occasionally blog about them here:
