"The Messenger" Su Rynard
A visually thrilling ode to the beauty and importance of the imperiled songbird. In ancient times humans looked to the flights and songs of birds to foretell the future. Today once again the birds have something to tell us. Moving from the northern reaches of the Boreal Forest to the base of Mount Ararat in Turkey to the streets of New York, The Messenger brings us face-to-face with a remarkable variety of human-made perils that have devastated thrushes, warblers, orioles, tanagers, grosbeaks and many other airborne music-makers.
