An essential film for anyone who cares about the environment and nature and full of insights and revelations for all audiences, The Messenger explores mankind’s deep-seated connection to songbirds and the devastating impact humans have had on bird species - from urbanisation and climate change to pesticides.
Filmed across three continents The Messenger extends us a ‘birds’-eye view’ to offer fresh glimpses into epic migratory journeys while chronicling the struggle of songbirds worldwide to survive in turbulent environmental conditions. As scientists, activists and bird enthusiasts investigate this phenomenon, amazing secrets of the bird world come to light for the first time while beautiful slow motion photography illustrates the power and beauty of these delicate winged creatures.
The Messenger is both an artful story about the mass depletion of songbirds on multiple continents and a visually stunning emotional journey, one that mixes its reflective message with hopeful notes and unique glances into the influence of songbirds on our own expressions of the soul.
