The Ornithologist

the-ornithologist-1

(2016) dir João Pedro Rodrigues w/Paul Hamy [117 min; DCP]
In the latest surreal film from João Pedro Rodrigues, a solitary ornithologist (Hamy) embarks on a search for an elusive species of stork but is swept up in an entirely different quest – a psycho-sexual odyssey of self-discovery.

“Delightful and narratively adventurous…” – The New York Times

“An immersion in pure cinema… erotic and hilariously surreal misadventures.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“American gay movies never contemplate gay life as having existential or spiritual meaning but that is Rodrigues’ adventure in this strange, mesmerizing study of the transformation of gay consciousness.” – Armond White, Out Magazine

“The film has a remarkable patience and beauty, taking the time to live in its offbeat, unsettling moments.” – Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
