dir. Alfred Hitchcock, US, 1963, 35mm, 119 min.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary, Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller about a small town terrorized by a series of bird attacks is the quintessential bird film, though bird enthusiasts might take issue with its less than flattering depiction of the generally harmless creatures. The film was inspired by real life events that occurred in Monterey Bay, California. The Birds remains one of Hitchcock’s finest works, inspiring a whole genre of animal attack films over the years.
dir. Jerome Hill, US, 1969, 16mm, 4 min.
Jerome Hill employs a direct animation technique in a delightful homage to songbirds (and lovebirds).
