THE PIGEONEERS -  (unrated)

2012 - USA - English - 111 minutes - Croseri Productions

Directed by: Alessandro Croseri

Featuring: Col. Clifford A. Poutre, Chief Pigeoneer US Army Signal Corps, 1936-1943

showtimes and tickets

In this debut film, director Alessandro Croseri delivers a stunningly beautiful ode to combat pigeons and their pigeoneers. The documentary follows Col. Clifford Poutre at age 103 during the final year of his life and examines his innovations in the training of homing pigeons for combat missions during World War II.

Drawing on a rich array of archival footage, the film tells the story of Poutre’s thirty-one years of military service as former Chief Pigeoneer of the U.S. Army Signal Corps, his successful rejection of "starvation" methods of training in favor of a system defined by kindness and care, his pigeons’ remarkable feats both in combat and in civilian races, and his notable friendships with the likes of Nikola Tesla, himself an impassioned pigeon handler in the later years of his life.

Through a collection of intimate interviews and black and white photography set to the nostalgic tunes of Glenn Miller, The Pigeoneers serves up a one-of-a-kind tribute and heartfelt exploration of the complex, interdependent relationships between humans and the birds we so often overlook.

"There’s no doubting that The Pigeoneers, Alessandro Croseri’s documentary about the use of pigeons by the military, is a labor of love..... it seems downright unpatriotic not to celebrate the accomplishments of these birds who served valiantly and who were rewarded with such honors as the Purple Heart and the Distinguished Service Medal...... "
- Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter, June 11, 2012.

reklamie czy o różnym zestawie. iemniej ważne jest ustawienie osób, które wydają nasze reklamy. Jeżeli planujemy sens polecić toż spółce, jaka się tym dotyczy wtedy umiemy sobie z razu dać spokój. Osoby rozdające ulotki powinny być ściśle wyszukane oraz przeszkolone przez nas. Skąd cierpi pomysłu, by nasze ulotki dochodziły do osób, jakich własna propozycja całkiem nie dotyczy. Więc te zdrowym programem jest finansowanie takim typom za godzinę pracy a nie za kwota ulotek, które wydali. Więc mamy niewyobrażalnie wyższą nadzieję, że nie będą ich poświęcać byle komu. Jest wtedy tzw. "reklama targetowana" czyli podawana do jednostek, które mogą bronić się potencjalnymi kontrahentami. Świetnym ideałem jest np. dawanie ulotki reklamującej salon fryzjerski łysemu typowi w wieku powyżej 70 lat. Przy takim rozwiązaniu nie jesteśmy nadziei na swobodną konwersję. Warto także by osoby rozdające ulotki znacznie się grały również umiały porozmawiać z ewentualnymi nabywcami o polskiej
