A bereaved young girl heads into the countryside on the hunt for a very specific bird.

Directed by Laurie Barraclough

Written by Laurie Barraclough & Isabella Speaight


'Birdwatcher' follows a young woman hiking through the British Countryside. She’s clearly searching for a specific bird. But she looks a bit out of place. She doesn’t even seem to be able to read a map properly... And more than that, there’s a sadness that seems to be driving her.


'Birdwatcher' is a human story told in the heart of nature. A short film about outwardly and inwardly searching for something that seems to be just out of our reach.

Birdwatcher was shot in September 2019 and is currently in post-production.
