Su Rynard’s wide-ranging and contemplative documentary THE MESSENGER explores our deep-seated connection to birds and warns that the uncertain fate of songbirds might mirror our own. Moving from the northern reaches of the Boreal Forest to the base of Mount Ararat in Turkey to the urban 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.
Join Los Angeles Audubon at the Los Angeles premiere of The Messenger for a Q&A discussion after the film. Panelists include Brad Rumble of the Los Angeles Audubon, Dan Cooper, author of Important Bird Areas of California and authority on California bird ecology, and Scott Logan, Co-owner of Wild Wings Backyard Nature Store in Sherman Oaks and avid bird watcher.
