aemi is thrilled to present Killing the Messengers by Irish filmmaker Bryony Dunne as the fourth in its current series of online screenings. Completed earlier this year, Killing the Messengers combines ancient mythology and modern ornithology to focus on birds as omens, as trackers of climate degradation, pollution and habitat loss. Set on the Greek island of Antikythera where thousands of migratory birds rest and refuel before continuing their journeys across the Mediterranean Sea, Killing the Messengers focuses in part on a team of scientists interested in using birds as ‘exceptional indexes for tracking environmental risk factors’. The screening is accompanied by a commissioned text by artist and writer Suzanne Walsh, which explores folkloric and contemporary understandings of birds as “living data”.
