Feeding the Birdies

Dagie Brundert

Short film

We don’t see much in this ambitious Super 8 wildlife documentary. The film-maker lies in wait:
»A cold and stormy day in South Sweden. I want to feed the little birdies and offer them some sunflower seeds. No birdie comes. The next day? Time lapsing, slowing down … ah! Here! A great tit! A birdie! 1/24th second … one frame, one bird.« Dagie Brundert
Super 8 TriX developed in rapeseed tea and some curcuma.

Dagie Brundert

Dagie Brundert studied graphic art and experimental film design in Berlin, and in the late 1980s discovered a passion for Super 8 film. Since then, she has worked exclusively with a Nizo Super 8 camera and is entirely self-taught: she animates, absorbs and creates. Her work is shown internationally. In recent years, she has become a specialist in biologically developed Super 8 films and photos.
