Storyline

Birdsong is a quirky coming-of-age short film set in a stylized 90's New Zealand. It follows a young boy's changing perception of his eccentric father. He steals dogs, he runs obsessive tests on injured animals, and wears a finch-like bird mask. A tragic turn raises the stakes, the relationship now hinging on the validity of the father's experiments. Written by Ben Childs
