The Ornithologist

The Ornithologist

An ornithologist, Fernando, on a canoeing field trip in the remote regions of northern Portugal capsizes and is rescued by two strange Chinese Catholic pilgrims. Based on the legend of St Anthony, this bizarre journey of self-discovery is a narratively inventive work which won Best Direction at 2016 Locarno International Film Festival. Visually stunning.
