Su Rynard’s wide-ranging and contemplative documentary "The Messenger" explores our deep-seated connection to birds and warns that the uncertain fate of songbirds might mirror our own. Moving from the northern reaches of the boreal forest to the base of Mount Ararat in Turkey to the streets of New York, "The Messenger" brings us face-to-face with a remarkable variety of human-made perils that have devastated thrushes, warblers, orioles, tanagers, grosbeaks and many other airborne music-makers.

A discussion led by Dr. Jameson Chace, professor in the Department of Biology and Biomedical Sciences, will follow the screening.
