The award-winning eco-documentary film, The Messenger, is coming to Golden.

An essential film for anyone who cares about the environment and nature, The Messenger explores mankind’s deep-seated connection to songbirds and the devastating impact humans have had on bird species, from urbanization, climate change and pesticides.

Since its world premiere at Toronto’s Hot Docs Film Festival, The Messenger has wowed audiences the world over at more than 30 international film festivals, played in over 100 US Cinemas, and is available on US Netflix.

Shot in Canada, Costa Rica, Germany, France, The Netherlands and the USA, The Messenger is an international story with high stakes global consequences. The film argues that the decline of songbirds is due to human activity, signaling an uncertain shift in an already fragile ecosystem while warning that the uncertain fate of songbirds might mirror our own.

The Messenger is directed by Su Rynard and produced by Joanne Jackson. Both grew up listening to bird song in the forest: Su at her family cottage in the Kawartha’s and Joanne in her hometown of New Liskeard, Ontario.
