Song of a Bird - Nassaba

In NASSABA: SONG OF A BIRD, Jimmy Grima follows his father, an amateur of the contested and meanwhile forbidden practice of bird-trapping, with a camera. In a one-hour performance, Jimmy documents and unravels the world, the sentiments and the arts of his father and his peers, who know how to whistle and call like singing birds. Nassaba : Song of A Bird, is a portrait of the delicate relation between father and a son, a documentation of a dissappearing practice and a subjective archive of popular technology of bird-trapping.
