Trailerama: Der Tag des Spatzen (The Day of the Sparrow)

In November 2005, director Philip Scheffner opened up his newspaper and was struck by two articles. The first described the shooting of a sparrow in the Netherlands. The second noted the death of a German soldier in a suicide attack. Struck by this juxtaposition, Scheffner has made a nature documentary that is also a war film, filming birds from the Baltic Sea to the heart of Germany. He calls it “politischer Naturfilm.” The imagery is eerie and beautiful. As his journey continues, the watcher becomes the watched. Due to have its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival.
