The Lost Bird Project – March 18 at 6 pm

We recently came across this project and thought it interesting. “The Lost Bird Project is a documentary about the stories of five birds driven to extinction in modern times and sculptor Todd McGrain’s project to memorialize them. This film will be shown March 18 at 6 pm during the March 15-25, 2012 edition of the International Festival of Films on Art. For information on tickets, venue and showtimes, please visit www.lostbirdproject.org

The film is an elegy to the five birds and a thoughtful and sometimes humorous look at the artist and his mission. The Lost Bird Project is a “buddy movie” about public art, extinction and memory.”
