Travelling Birds - Monday Night Movie plus Guest Speaker

Event Description

Travelling Birds is no David Attenborough insight into the behaviour of fauna, it's a visual feast of feathers and locations, from the Arctic to the deserts of Africa, from Mont St. Michel to Monument Valley. This bird's eye view is a mesmerising and totally fascinating experience.

Marvellous photography enhances this stirring nature film about the tenacity of birds of all sorts as they take off on long voyages of migration. A a toss-up as to which is the biggest star of Travelling Birds - the 150 species of birds or the jaw-dropping camerawork that captures them on film.

The wow factor of Travelling Birds comes from the cinematography, which warrants superlatives. The audience is treated to a smooth series of birds in flight, soaring, thrusting, beating their way above snow and glaciers, patchwork fields, churning oceans, stark cities and yellow grassy plains, in a desperate bid to make it through another season.

It's such an extraordinary feeling flying alongside the birds with the earth and its distinctive features, monuments and cities clearly defined below that you get the eerie feeling that this is just another computer-generated trick.

The filmmakers have shot close-ups of snow geese, Japanese cranes, condors, albatross, swans and other feathery flotillas completing their semi-annual migrations across the globe.

Watching this film woos you into a slower breathing rhythm. You leave feeling "chilled out" and "at one with the world".
