On the heels of a successful American theatrical launch in 40+ markets, THE MESSENGER’S Canada-wide theatrical release visits Saskatoon on March 16th at the Broadway Theatre
Nominated for a 2016 Canadian Screen Award for Best Cinematography in a Feature Length Documentary, THE MESSENGER, an international story with high stakes global consequences, mesmerizes audiences with stunning slow- motion sequences of songbirds in night flight – all the while chronicling the struggle of songbirds worldwide to survive the turbulent environmental conditions brought about by humans.
Akin to the disappearance of the honeybee or the melting of glaciers, the film argues that the global demise of songbirds signals an uncertain shift in an already fragile ecosystem and explores our deep-seated connection to birds, while warning that the uncertain fate of songbirds might mirror our own.
