Nest

To a rhythmic drumbeat and in vibrant strokes of colour, a lovesick bird-of-paradise prances through the black of the night, flaunting his majestic plumage in an attempt to impress the females. Following her final film school project, Cocoon Child (2009), this playfully orchestrated spectacle of colour and captivation marks the second Generation world premiere for Sonja Rohleder, co-founder of the Berlin-based Talking Animals collective.
