Azar Saiyar (b.1979) is a Helsinki-based media artist and filmmaker who often uses archive materials as the basis for her works. Her films study and challenge these found images, texts and sounds, by looking closely, listening and going deep into details.
A narrator asks: “Do you know this bird?”. The film quotes both public and private archival images in which birds are in the centre – birds as individual living beings but also as creatures habiting the world and stories created by humans.
