Movie Review

This month’s movie is The Messenger.messenger1The Messenger investigates the cause and effect of the disappearance of the world’s songbirds. Global warming, predation by cats, hunting by humans, deforestation, noise and light pollution and pesticides are explored. The documentary interviews scientists and bird lovers from different parts of the world.m2There are some beautiful shots of various birds, both in their natural habitats and flying inĀ  slow motion. The satellite maps of migration routes are interesting as well.
While there positive strides being made (Toronto activists drastically cutting collision deaths by placing markers on mirrored/clear-glass building surfaces), The MessengerĀ is a warning that more needs to be done before it is too late.

*Cooper wasn’t allowed to watch this movie, because it was too disturbing.
