In the old days, coal miners would carry canaries with them down the mines to determine whether the air was toxic. And if the bird passed out, it was time to get back up to the surface. THE MESSENGER suggests that the changes we are now seeing in the population and behaviour patterns of the world's birds is a similar warning sign – but on a global scale. Featuring mesmerizing slow motion footage of birds from all over the world, THE MESSENGER is a compelling film about humanity's unwillingness to listen to mother nature.
