FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Norristown, Pa, December 18, 2021,
Our team is documenting the phenomenon of awakening that occurred in natural world as a result of the global pandemic of 2020 and the ripple awakenings within the human community that occurred simultaneously. Shifting baselines are those slow, hard to notice changes in our daily existence. From the change in the cadence of birds, to the militarization of the police, 2020 forced the US into an awakening. As nature reclaimed space, birds were the first to provide the early indicators of this shift. This slowdown in human activity- what science calls "anthropause" heightened our collective awareness. Our film, Sounds of Silence explores this concept. We discuss the shifting baselines of the anthropause phase and how those power shifts continue into the next phases of the coronavirus pandemic. Our film journey begs the question who has the most a stake in this pandemic story? What is the social contract that humans have with nature and each other? In doing this we look at the structural conditions that undergird conceptions about people of color and our connection to the natural world.
Sounds of Silence is in pre-production. Our film will use a case study format and is looking for persons from under-represented communities who have deep interest in or connections with ornithology (birding), nature studies, environmentalism, conservation, or have taken part in recreational activities such birdwatching in any manner (alone, family, group, any setting) nature photography/video, nature bathing, etc. to feature in the upcoming film.
