Synopsis: “The Birdcage” is a story of familial discontent set against a rural landscape. Situated within the genre of an internal family drama, the film depicts a breakdown of a marriage through the eyes of a young boy.
“The Birdcage” is one of the few selected projects given a green light as a final graduation film at the University for the Creative Arts at Farnham. A subtly beautiful and poignant nature of the story brought together a crew of likeminded and talented individuals who have every intention of not only bringing the project to life but also succeeding on both their course and short film festival circuits.
