Cine-Psittà

  1. Newly discovered from the vaults, CinePsitta is proud to present this legendary low-budget horror flick, also known as "Serati Has Risen From The Glove". Low on plot, but high on gore and cheap thrills, this spooky classic stars the enigmatic cult icon Coragyps Atratus - known as the Bela Lugosi of the avian screen: a critically maligned and publicly misunderstood Black Vulture from the southeast US who puts the Bird in B-movie.

    Shot on a back lot at the studios of The National Aviary in Pittsburgh, beloved among horror buffs for its low-production values and campy fun (dig the unintentionally coffin-shaped cage!), with a supporting cast of total unknowns.

  2. Lucky is her name, if not her lot. This talented young bohemian has suffered for her art, as her featherless patch sadly shows. Still, her talent and passion have found a home at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh, where in exchange for the relative safety of a cage she is provided with the means to express herself.

    This video is a testament to the creative energy and vision of a unique painter whose spirit soars farther than her wings can fly.
