Birds (or How to Be One)

80 mins
7.4 / 10 (1105)


A film about how to become a bird, in nine steps. A man who doesn’t want to walk anymore, but to fly, states you can turn in any direction in the sky. “Gravity is mortality,” says another. In the meantime, the two men go in search of birdman Hoopoe.

MUBI's take

Ducking and diving between fiction and documentary, this utopian paean to freedom was inspired by Aristophanes’s comedy The Birds. Pity director Babis Makridis sets loose a playful, tentative, experimental essay about humanity’s timeless quest for liberation. Where will it land? Watch to find out.
