    A poetry film based on the poem, the one about the bird, written by Melissa Diem and filmed in Ireland. It explores the human attraction to horrific events through the medium of film. And the idea of the desire to stop and begin again when a situation, an experience, humanity... seems to have gone so horrendously wrong that it is beyond the point of return and can never be undone.

    The poem and the visuals were influenced by a black and white film (source unknown) in which children stone a wounded bird to death. I saw this clip of film at a young age and the scenes and all they implied were so startling to me that I have never forgotten the images. Other cinematic influences include the film 'Don’t Look Now' in which images suddenly surface in a fleeting glimpse like repressed memories shifting through consciousness.

Credo che la violenza sia diventata un punto fermo di una sceneggiatura, ed è presente per una ragione drammaturgica. Non penso che la gente pensa al diavolo con le corna e la coda biforcuta, e quindi non crede alla punizione dopo la morte. Allora mi sono chiesto a cosa crede la gente, o meglio di che cosa ha paura: del dolore fisico, e il dolore fisico si sprigiona dalla violenza, è questa credo l'unica cosa che la gente realmente teme al giorno d'oggi, e che quindi è diventata una parte ben definita della vita e ovviamente anche della sceneggiatura.
