Ghost Bird Synopsis Set in a murky swamp overflowing with birders, scientists and government money, Ghost Bird explores the limits of certainty, the seductive power of hope, and how one phantom woodpecker changed a sleepy Southern town forever.
This thrilling eco-noir investigates the strange but true story of a small town in Arkansas overrun by a nation of birders all in search of the Holy Grail with wings - the Ivory-billed woodpecker.
Presumed extinct for over half a century, the iconic bird was seen flying through the bayous of eastern Arkansas in 2004 by scientists who announced the Ivory-bill's miraculous rediscovery. Or was it?
Despite years of searching, the bird's fate remains a mystery. This witty, intelligent documentary brings the Ivory-bill's blurry rediscovery into focus, revealing our uneasy relationship with
nature and the increasing uncertainty of our place within it.
Featuring music by The Pixies, The Black Keys, Under Byen, Hazmat Modine, The Black Heart Procession and an original score by Zoë Keating.
