The Ornithologist

6 Oct 201718 Oct 2017

Fernando, a solitary ornithologist, is looking for endangered black storks along a remote river in northern Portugal, when he is swept away by the rapids. Rescued by a couple of Chinese pilgrim girls on their way to Santiago de Compostela, he plunges into a dark, eerie forest, trying to get back on track. As he encounters unexpected and uncanny obstacles and people who put him to test, Fernando is driven to extreme and transformative actions. Gradually he becomes a different man: inspired, multifaceted and, finally, enlightened.
