‘A Birder’s Guide to Everything’
The Williamstown Film Festival returns to MASS MoCA’s Hunter Center on Friday, November 1, at 8, with a New England premiere screening of ‘A Birder’s Guide to Everything.’ This delightful feature, which was a 2013 Tribeca Film Festival audience favorite, follows David, a 15-year-old birding fanatic, and a trio of his friends on an epic adventure to find a supposedly extinct duck, solidify a place in birding history, and inadvertently, for David, come to terms with the recent loss of his mother. A full bar as well as dinner and snacks from Lickety Split are available prior to the screening. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 day of show, available through the MASS MoCA box office located on Marshall Street in North Adams, Mass., by phone at 413-662-2111 or online at massmoca.org.
