The Ornithologist


Director. Joao Pedro Rodrigues

Avid birdwatcher Fernando is travelling through the most remote parts of northern Portugal as part of a research project into black storks. Fernando is forced to travel by land and water, and during one stretch of the trek, his canoe overturns. His body is washed into the dense jungle where two Catholic pilgrims, Fei and Lin, discover Fernando. They strip him down to his underwear and tie him to a tree, abandoning him to the elements. Thankfully, Fernando manages to wriggle free of his bindings.
