Crows and Branches is an experimental video that meditates on the wonder of the movement of nature.
In Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada, there occurs a daily natural phenomenon. At dusk thousands of crows appear, as if out of no where, in the sky over the city, and flock to Victoria Park at the water's edge. They amass in such numbers that they turn entire trees black and fill the sky with a symphony of haunting cries.
Crows and Branches is a homage to this wonder. It is a ritual that effects every citizen of Charlottetown, despite ongoing attempts to disperse the birds out of duty to gleaming cars and unsullied lawns.
It is a daily reminder to look up. We are bound to our earth and its rhythms.
