    Event description

    Upper Kangaroo Valley Landcare Group are pleased to present this fund-raising event and thank Mark Pearce - Creative Producer, Balangara Films for the opportunity.

    An award-winning film looking deep into the behaviour of lyrebirds, its birding subculture, the science, the sounds, and the Original Australian story of the lyrebird.

    We are taken on a journey into the forests of Australia, where a lyrebird keeper, a scientist, a sound recordist, a study group, an activist and a Knowledge-Holder help us understand not only the lyrebird’s sophisticated artwork, but what its message may be for humanity.

    The Message of the Lyrebird asks its audience to contemplate the co-existence of the lyrebird and humanity, and to reflect on the lyrebird’s astonishing behaviour, its wisdom, and its peaceful commitment to the continuation of life. The film considers the values of intelligence and consciousness, the sacred connection between humans and lyrebirds, and the wisdom that is found when we listen to our shared communal spirit.

    This film is about the relationship between people and birds and an exquisite forest faery who has been performing song and dance routines for millions of years. A timeless odyssey of self-reflection and a call to remember to live without destroying the things we love.
