THE BIRDER, 12min., USA, Documentary
Directed by Toby Hayman
J. Drew Lanham has lived his life vicariously through birds. As a boy in rural South Carolina they showed him a world beyond his backyard, and taught him how the places of the world are connected. Today as an ecology professor and ornithologist he watches birds to learn how our environment is changing. They provide a warning, but they also give us hope.
