Brothers and Birds
A 56’ documentary directed in 2013 by Svetlana Bychenko
“Brothers and Birds” is a story about twin brothers, who were brought up by the birds…
Their father was a famous nature photographer and Jaeger. All their childhood the brothers were living in the forest.
The first time they saw other people was when they were seven years old. They are modern Mowgli from “Jungle Book”.
Unique shots of nature (two cuckoo chicks in one nest, an attempt of a cuckoo to drop its egg in the warbler…) are used to illustrate the relationship between brothers, and not only to show nature facts.
