Trailer for The Messenger which will be screening at the Hot Docs Film Festival.

Often heard before seen, songbirds are instrumental in Mother Nature’s soundtrack. From Canada's boreal forest, to Turkey’s wetlands, to New York’s night skies, the migration patterns of these birds are vital links in the global ecosystem. Current technological advances allow scientists to track individual birds’ journeys, providing detailed information on where and when they travel. The data is alarming, and the causes of the songbirds' plummeting population are numerous and devastating. Pesticides, monoculture, the wholesale destruction of forests, predators and city lights are killing them off at massive rates, while climate change is happening too rapidly for them to adjust. The peril of avian species is a literal canary in the coal mine for humans, if we’re willing to listen and take action before they’re silenced. The elegance of these colourful creatures is captured in stunning slow-motion flight as ecologists, enthusiasts and everyday people work to protect them and petition for change.
