In a stark laboratory, ruthless experiments by a bird scientist cause a freak explosion, freeing one of his subjects. An abused cat slips free from her cage as a coyote digs through trash outside. Once free, the animals must not only fend for themselves, but hunt and be hunted by each other in the wild. Yet hope triumphs as birth breathes renewal into the circle of life. Poetically animated in stark, black and white silhouette while the camera turns the animals – and the viewer -- upside down.
CAT BIRD COYOTE has been named an Official Selection of 15 film festivals and has won a couple. Now playing Virgin America airlines.
