No other bird on the planet can do what the lyrebird can do. This is a film about the relationship between people and the lyrebirds, set in a natural wonderland where an exquisite forest faery has been performing his astonishing song and dance routines for millions of years. It is a timeless journey of self-reflection and connection, and a call to remember to live without destroying the things we love.
For more information about the film and to watch the trailer go to The Message of the Lyrebird website.
Tickets ($19 + $1 booking fee) are available at Glenbrook Cinema's online bookings.
