Birdcalls (2007)

Malcolm Sutherland is one of Canada’s most talented and imaginative young animation filmmakers. Birdcalls won the prestigious debut prize at the Hiroshima International Animation Festival. Sutherland also works as an illustrator and comic book artist. His drawings and prints have been exhibited across Canada. His comic book Oola Dug won the 2008 Expozine Alternative Press Award for Best Comic.
He was a student of both astronomy and classical printmaking before he discovered animation at the Quickdraw Animation Society in Calgary, Alberta.

Have you never tried to talk with your dog, your cat or a bird? What if can they be trying to tell us something?
Sutherland, with Birdcalls, has an answer of sorts: the written languages of birds come to life.
