Reel Earth 8: 4th Sept 430pm
The Legend of the Pale Male Frederic Lilien :: Luxembourg :: 2008 :: 70 mins When a wild red-tailed hawk, dubbed "Pale Male" because of his colouring, settled in New York's Central Park in the early 1990s he became a celebrity. For nearly 20 years a young Belgian documented Pale Male and the effect he had on humans, including the outrage when the rich occupants of the apartment building tried to get the nest that Pale Male and his partner had set up removed. A beautiful, subtle and sometimes humorous story about hard-nosed New Yorkers discovering environmental consciousness.
