The Messenger follows songbirds on a visually sumptuous yet perilous journey through our changing world. We touch down in the dense metropolis of New York City, forsaken suburbs, northern forests, the tropics of Central America, Turkey’s far-east, and Germany’s night clubs. The birds have something to tell us, and the message is not a comfortable one. The film engages with a global army of scientists, ecologists and bird enthusiasts mobilizing in the race against time.

Directed by Su Rynard. Produced by Joanne Jackson, SongbirdSOS Productions and Films à Cinq.
