Overview

Overview The Messenger

Director: Su Rynard
Canada, 2015, 84 mins.

For thousands of years, songbirds were regarded by mankind as messengers from the gods. Today, these creatures – woven inextricably into the fabric of our environment – are vanishing at an alarming rate. Under threat from climate change, pesticides and more, populations of hundreds of species have dipped dramatically. As scientists, activists, and bird enthusiasts investigate this phenomenon, amazing secrets of the bird world come to light for the first time in this acclaimed and visually thrilling documentary. Find out what’s killing our songbirds, and what can be done about it. As in ancient times, songbirds may once again be carrying a message to humans – one that we ignore at our own peril.  This film won the prize for Best Conservation Program at the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival. Special thanks to Audubon Maryland-DC, Lights Out Baltimore, and the Phoenix Wildlife Center.

7:30pm | ADV $10, $7 mbrs. DOOR $12, $9 mbrs.

"Traveling the world to spotlight challenges and solutions, filmmaker Su Rynard never loses sight of the [songbirds'] sheer beauty, or their emotional and symbolic pull as perceived intermediaries between the earthly and spiritual.” -Variety

"The Messenger hums with the kind of restless energy that’s all too rare for an eco-doc... a testament to Rynard’s success at finding so many dynamic human subjects all striving to save songbirds"  -The Hollywood Reporter
