90 minutes/ hybrid fiction
Set amongst the lush hyper colour tropics of north Queensland Australia, Nina is an ecologist who runs a successful environmental consultancy firm. Her ordered life is interrupted when she unexplainably starts wandering in her sleep at night to the nearby rainforest. THE FLIGHTLESS BIRD is a metaphysical ghost story that explores the uncanny sensation of guilt, denial and complicity.
The film has recently been awarded a development grant from a philanthropic fund through GNS in Australia.
