Film synopsis: What is the essence of life? How often do we wander in our imaginary illusions? Is there something above the human? The one-shot film “Birdie” reveals a moment of the artist’s life, who is caught by the power of the irrational and incomprehensible. In pursuit of it he almost loses something real and meaningful.

Film synopsis: Being left alone, the woman recalls the fragments of the passing day that has connected her with a man for evermore. «I want to run away, I’m afraid of them, Indians, music, why am I here, touching, light, destroyed world, loveless». Wanting to drown out the feelings flickering inside, she presses the horn of the car with all her might, imagining the first bright day of her nascent life.
