Review: Epic Journeys

I just viewed the captivating 35 minute documentary film Epic Journey by Migration Productions. This is an independent film by James Grady and Shawn Carey. A two minute preview is available above. The film was very very well done. The footage and the interviews were excellent as they inform the public about the importance of migratory stop-over points for the Red Knot, the Piping Plover, and the Semipalmated Sandpiper. The video of the birds is perfectly timed to many of the comments being spoken, almost as if choreographed. I like that the film-makers understand the difficult challenge of satisfying beach-goers while protecting the birds in a critical situation. It really is a life or death moment for these birds. This film will go a long way in helping people understand this. This magical portrayal of these amazing birds will inspire people to care. There are opportunities for birders to share and purchase this important film. Please visit the website to learn more.
