Paws to Read Film: Fly Away Home

July 12, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

FLY AWAY HOME

A young girl from New Zealand, who survives a car crash that results in the death of her mother, is sent to live with her father on an Ontario farm, where she adopts a brood of baby Canada geese. When the birds imprint on her as their Mother Goose, she realizes that unless she and her father can teach the birds a migration route from Ontario to North Carolina, the birds will not be able to survive the winter. The solution comes in the form of ultralight aircraft that are used to guide the birds to sanctuary.

Fly Away Home dramatizes the actual experiences of Bill Lishman, who in 1986 started training geese to follow his ultralight and succeeded in leading their migration in 1993.  

 

Fly Away Home is a 1996 family drama film directed by Carroll Ballard, the director of The Black Stallion (1979). The film stars Anna PaquinJeff Daniels and Dana Delany. The film was released on September 13, 1996 by Columbia Pictures.
