The feature debut from the Academy Award-winning team behind the much-loved Wallace and Gromit shorts is a charming adventure set on a Yorkshire chicken farm. In the prison-like conditions, any chicken who doesn’t make her egg quota can meet a “fowl” fate. Rocky, a Rhode Island Red American rooster who can sort of fly, and Ginger, a British hen, are determined to break out from the sinister farm before they can be turned into chicken pot pies. How will their great escape succeed?



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
