This documentary presents an epic portrait of winter bird migration. Filmed on all seven continents over four years, the footage is brought together into one portrait of a journey that’s uniformly arduous for all kinds of different birds. Rather than concentrating on statistics and facts, the film near-wordlessly portrays the sheer physical effort demanded of the birds on their disparate routes.
Judith Zinis, Professor emeritus of Ocean County College and Princeton Adult School instructor, will lead a post-screening discussion on the role of music in the making of this documentary and others.
