SONDay Monday Screening: Brian Bird
The March 28, 2016, SONDay Monday screening of CAPTIVE starring Academy Award-winning DAVID OYELOWO (12 Years a Slave) and KATE MARA (The Martian) was a resounding success! Attendees called the film “incredible” and “superb” and peppered Brian Bird with questions afterward. Bird shared stories of how he came to be involved with the project, and gave insight into his thought process regarding the balance of gritty content with a desire to keep the film accessible. The audience also held fans of Bird’s current hit television series, “When Calls the Heart,” based on the best-selling books by Janette Oke and starring LORI LOUGHLIN, ERIN KRAKOW, and DANIEL LISSING. The series is directed by Bird’s producing partner, MICHAEL LANDON, JR.
The SONDay Monday program features one film screening per month (excluding summer) at the luxury Paragon Theater on Vanderbilt Beach Road in Naples, FL. Screenings always take place on a Monday night at 6:30pm. SON provides a film and someone associated with that film to be present at the screening for Q&A afterward. The program raises awareness for SON, its mission, and media worth watching.
