In South Central Los Angeles there is a group of avian enthusiasts who breed, raise, train and show acrobatic pigeons known as Birmingham Rollers. The birds take flight and perform backward somersaults rapidly — the more synchronized the better. The documentary follows the process of participating in this unique competitive sport with defending champion Keith London and his protege Darrian Hogg.
Pigeon Kings will be showing at the following times and locations during the Seattle International Film Festival: Saturday, June 8 at 6:45 PM and Sunday, June 9 at 11:00 AM, AMC Pacific Place. Director Milena Pastreich, subjects Keith London, Darrian Hogg scheduled to attend.
