Journey Birds

While abroad, I spoke with many immigrants who discussed their experiences and feelings about moving to a different country. Their stories were unique, but they all contained longings for their homeland intertwined with curiosity and delight in their new home. The movie relates a visual and cinematic commentary, in which people appear as a hybrid between man and bird.
