Director: Tony Gault & Elizabeth Henry | Producer: Tony Gault
Focus Years: 2009 | Country: United States
When a man "rescues" a baby crow one stormy night, he begins to question his relationship to the natural world. “Fledgling” is a short documentary that explores notions of domestication, both in humans and wild animals. “This poem-in-motion from Colorado co-directors Tony Gault and Elizabeth Henry owes more to Henry David Thoreau than to National Geographic, and would make for a smartly nuanced addition to any environmental festival. Indeed, directors like Gault and Henry remind us that movies from our own pastoral outposts are much more exotic and foreign than anything that arrives on these shores from big urban centers like Berlin or Sarajevo. Too often we forget that there are talented film-makers right in our own rural backyard, recording their very own unique way of life.” Lauren Wissot, “Slant” Magazine.
