What better place to watch a film on nature than in the great outdoors? Thats just what the Aurora Picture Show has in mind with the outdoor screening of Michael Gitlins The Birdpeople at the University of Houston. Alternately humorous and touching, Gitlins film is a portrait of amateur birdwatchers, trained ornithologists, bird banders and lost species hunters. The Birdpeople is a perfect complement to Jean-Luc Mylaynes monumental photographs of commonplace birds on display nearby at the Blaffer Gallery. (Dont worry about the weather; theres a backup indoor site.)
