Night Parrot Stories

Night Parrot Stories

89 minutes | 2016 | Australia
Directed by Rob Nugent

Somewhere in the remote deserts of Australia lived an elusive nocturnal bird called the Night Parrot. Virtually nothing is known of its ecology. It disappeared at the end of the 19th Century.

Searching for evidence of its existence became a preoccupation. Night Parrot Stories was filmed in all the locations where Night Parrots once lived, during a time when stories of extinction were everywhere.

Night Parrot Stories is an elegy that explores our obsession with the bird, and how knowledge may come to be created from landscapes, neglected stories and the loss of species from our world.

Includes introduction and Q&A with Director Rob Nugent and guests
