"The Magic Stump" tells the story of an Illinois tree stump that's attracted a phenomenal variety of wintering raptors through the years, including two rare Prairie Falcons. The goal of "The Magic Stump" is to draw attention to the raptors that winter in our agricultural landscape. The plan is for this film to be the first in "The Prairie State" series that will feature the land that once dominated Illinois. The film is directed by Bob Dolgan and edited by Sharon Filipkowski. Videography is by Mitchell Fransen and Mitchell Wenkus, and original music is by Empidonax. The story is adapted from a Meadowlark article by Tyler Funk. 

Bob Dolgan is a filmmaker and consultant who lives in Chicago. He’s created two films about Chicago’s Piping Plovers, Monty and Rose, that have been official selections of multiple film festivals and have aired on public television. He’s the author of This Week in Birding and the founder of Turnstone Strategies, which provides marketing/communications consulting to nonprofit organizations. He’s a graduate of Kenyon College in Ohio and has an MBA from Northwestern University.

Join us for dinner, drinks and a Q&A after the screening!
