Kestrel’s Eye / Falkens Öga

Kestrel's Eye_web

KESTREL’S EYE is a personal film about a kestrel family, living in the tower of an old village church in the south-west of Sweden. But it is also a film which shows the life of Homo Sapiens from a bird’s eye view…
The film doesn’t so much inform about the life of the kestrel, as draw its audience into how it feels to be a kestrel. In its narrative form, KESTREL’S EYE has as much in common with an epic feature film, as with a classical wildlife film.
