|Synopsis||There it stands, the vulture. Majestically spreading its wings. Holding its position, it scouts the open area. The other birds scrutinise their territory as well. Quo vadis, bird? Ulu BRAUN’s film Birds looks at the life of birds in urban habitats. They apply their instinctive behaviour to the developed environment. What role do humans play therein? Bags and umbrellas become bushes, buildings become monoliths and people become organisms. The birds are forced to come to terms with a world that they are not responsible for.|
