i'd like to think Connor sacrificed his old breath to save another in escaping the hawk. as to different lifeform & splashes of waterfalls... we all face the inevitable, but maybe the 'simpler' can't/won't waste their effort to contemplate about it. So the empathy conjured in me will have to contrast my omnivorous way as another 'absurd': maybe the conflict never resolves and doomed am I be my own monster and angel.
This documentary by Judy Irving depicts a man’s hobby that later became his passion. This type of documentary, one that I have not taken in interest before, has open my eyes to the power of nature and the emotional connection that can come from wild animals such as parrots. The captivating story, cinematography, raw knowledge, and relationships built has exposed me to grow an interest in documentaries about animals.
A warm-hearted documentary about Bittner and the parrots he befriended and cared for. Although I liked it, I thought the film left a lot of questions about Bittner unanswered. In particular, about his day-to-day survival. Where did he get money for food, bird seed etc? How did he come to live in his little rent-free apartment? Did he break in? The director obviously has a lot of affection for her subject.
