The Language of the Birds is an atmospheric short film set to the third verse of the poem “The Language of the Birds” from by Richard Siken. In this film I aim to showcase mood-heavy depictions of an age before artificial light and modernity, in the age of early man, and how they used to paint by torchlight to depict the world around them. It is up to the viewer to decide what meaning they interpret, with my personal aim being to create an atmosphere of wonder and mystery.
