“Do you know this bird?”, the host of the Finnish television show “The Apple Tree” asked in 1979. One could guess finch. To be followed later by hooded crows and a grey-brown nightingale that is good at hiding and only betrays its presence by its song. Birds are at the centre of this found footage film compiled from private and publicly accessible material – and the question of what stories humans read into nature.
