Bird’s-Eye View: The Films of Mikael Kristersson

Oct 25 — Oct 26, 2019

Over a sixty year career, filmmaker Mikael Kristersson has patiently, luminously transcribed the rich ecology of the coastline of southern Sweden, an internationally recognized landscape crucial to bird migration. Kristersson is recognized as one of Sweden’s finest documentarians, but his films are rarely seen in the United States. Hosted by the Museum of the Moving Image and their Science on Screen series, a weekend presentation of Kristersson’s three captivating films will feature conversations on the challenges facing the coastal environment of New York City and Sweden. These conversations will include Kristersson, best-selling author Eric Sanderson (Mannahatta), representatives of the New York City Audubon, environmentalists, and other eco-oriented filmmakers.

Organized by guest curators Gina Telaroli and Annie Novak. 

Presented with support from Nature, Environment, Science & Technology (NEST) Studio for the Arts at the University of Colorado Boulder, Growing Chefs, and the Consulate General of Sweden in New York.
