The Bird Catcher is a suspenseful, coming of age story set against the backdrop of violence and prejudice. It’s inspired by the little known actual stories of Norwegian Jews during World War 2 that have never been told. This film uncovers a hidden slice of history that grips at the heart and inspires us all at the deepest level – it’s a profound fable of identity and loss, of forced migration and the cost of war.
