It's time for the first movie night with The Locals of 2018. Come out, enjoy a night out with friends, a cold one from Kings, and popcorn! This time we are watching a contemporary Arkansas documentary filmed by former Conway residents: The Night the Black Bird Fell.

The sight of birds dying and falling from the sky has been an omen of dark times since at least ancient Greece. What does it mean now, in an era where human influence over the environment is hotly debated and exists alongside our instinct for visions of doom? On New Year's Eve, 2010, the town of Beebe, AR experienced this exact apocalyptic image: thousands of dead blackbirds littered the landscape. In The Night the Blackbirds Fell (2013), directors Will Scott and Brian Campbell investigate what happened to them in a compelling mix of documentary and graphic novel - a bold stylistic choice about a story that is both augur and scientific warning. 

We will have a discussion with co-director Will Scott after the screening. And as always, you can stick around for Trivia at Kings afterwards :)
