In “Silent Skies” a songbird in flight travels over the landscapes of today’s troubled world. This short film collages several layers of imagery to represent the birds perilous migratory journey. As the camera reveals their flight path, we realize that environmental changes created by humans are responsible for the dramatic decline of beloved songbirds.
