How does color and light get in? This film questions art and creation. With fluttering bird wings it dives into the idea that what we create already has a life of its own. From toucans to doves seeing the miraculous in the everyday adornment of wings is a choice and a story unto itself. The Bird Painter shows a short fable telling how the birds got their colors and why the doves did not. Told through watercolor and inked paper puppets along with lovely lyrical song, The Bird Painter is a film of charm that is not to be missed.
