Redbird and Other Birds
The location for this essayistic film is the area around a small suburban airport. Since the control tower is now closed down, plane collisions have to be averted via radio communications. Julieta Maria is interested in the connections and parallels between bird and aircraft spaces and their vulnerabilities. She creates an acoustic setting with radio transmissions and birdsong. A pilot and a birdwatcher are also invited to comment.
Julieta María is a Toronto-based media artist who works primarily with video performance and experimental documentaries.
