SYNOPSIS

'Inspired by a Persian fairy tale, and told in the ornate style of illustrated Persian manuscripts, Zeman's first feature is set on a remote island, where the inhabitants discover a legendary treasure that brings them both joy and grief. For the first time in Bird Island, Zeman combined stop-motion puppetry and traditional animation to create a timeless, glittering world of wonders.' – Berkely Art Museum Pacific Film Archive
