• Now Playing in Select Theatres in the UK

    "Stunning." ~ The Hollywood Reporter

  • Imagine a world without birdsong


    "The Messenger is riveting, emotionally engaging, and visually extravagant from the first frame to the last. This is a must-see movie for anybody who values the natural world or wonders about its relationship to humans." ~ John Fitzpatrick, Executive Director, Cornell Lab of Ornithology


THE MESSENGER is a visually thrilling ode to the beauty and importance of the imperiled songbird,
 and what it will mean to all of us on both a global and human level if we lose them.
