A visually thrilling eco-documentary that unravels the mystery behind the world’s vanishing songbird population and questions what this means for humankind’s’ own future.

The Messenger chronicles the struggle of songbirds worldwide to survive in turbulent environmental conditions brought about by humans and argues that their demise could signify the crash of the ecosystems globally, akin to the disappearance of honey bees and the melting of the glaciers.

 

There will be 15-20 minutes of trailers and adverts before the screening (not included in duration).
