2012 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Deborah, Dickson, Todd McGrain

The Lost Bird Project is a documentary about the stories of five birds driven to extinction in modern times and sculptor Todd McGrain’s project to memorialize them. The film follows the road-trip that McGrain and his brother-in-law, Andy, take as they search for the locations where the species were last seen in the wild and negotiate for permission to install McGrain’s large bronze sculptures there. The film is an elegy to the five birds and a thoughtful and sometimes humorous look at the artist and his mission.
