A visually thrilling ode to the beauty and importance of the imperiled songbird, and what it means to all of us on both a global and human level if we lose them. Humans once believed that birds could carry messages, their presence was meaningful. They have helped predict the change of seasons, the coming of storms and the rise of toxins in the food chain. Once again they have something to tell us, and the message is not a comfortable one.
Studio 74 is no ordinary cinema. As proud supporters of independent film, we offer exposure for emerging local and national filmmakers and treat our audiences to a unique and diverse viewing experience. Watch out for handpicked short films prior to selected feature screenings.

A visual and aural riff on the pioneering films of Mary Field and her early work for the Secrets of Nature series. With a score by the influential electronic music composer Matthew Herbert, Bird is about observation and environment, prompting a consideration of the ways in which cinematic tools camera, lens, colour, movement, voice, sound heighten and humanise our interpretation of the natural world. Screened as part of #TheArtistsCinema.
