On a research journey, the ornithologist Fernando goes astray. Straying alone through the rustic forests of Portugal, he experiences bizarre meetings and mysterious revelations, norms soften, erotic tensions dissolve. Fernando becomes slowly engulfed by nature and succumbs to a spiritual transformation. THE ORNITHOLOGIST won the prize for the best directing at the Locarno Film Festival in 2016. ”João Pedro Rodrigues`s fifth feature film is a deeply poetic confession of faith of a radical artist who shapes the world according to his own concepts.” (epd-film)
