Birdshot

Adelaide Film Festival

5 October 2017 - 15 October 2017

Beauty and brutality exist side-by-side in the award-winning second feature by talented young Filipino filmmaker Mikhail Red (Rekorder).

Newcomer Mary Joy Apostol is remarkable as 14-year-old Maya, a motherless farm girl who mistakenly kills a protected bird. Assigned to the case is Domingo, an idealistic rookie cop surrounded by a deeply embedded culture of corruption. Birdshot is an elegantly composed study in the loss of innocence and offers potent commentary on the present state of things in The Philippines.
