Passerine In Time
Denmark | 7' 53"
directed by Laurids Andersen Sonne
A study of the gestural encounter between the hand of man and the entrapment of birds in it. The film investigates the haptic encounters between man and bird, where the hand becomes an embodiment of man’s desire for knowledge about something other, through the methodical labor of the hand as it repeatedly captures, inspect, measure, band and logs migratory birds before their release. Something other in nature which by a mere flick is capable of something man has reached for in eternity; the freedom of flight.
