    Every September since I started my account, I have taken part in some sort of celebration of the directorial efforts of women. This year, a bunch of us wanted to spotlight those female directors whose names are not known, whose works do not get discussed, and whose films are under-seen or underrepresented within this community. Iโ€™ve been dying to catch The Metamorphosis of Birds since it premiered at Berlin in 2020, marketed as a hybrid creative/documentary piece about one Portugueseโ€ฆ

    Year Two, Gotham City. Crime is at an all time high, and no one does anything about it so long as the rich stay rich, and the poor stay silenced. The streets are crawling with predators, seeking to control their territory through intimidation and by inspiring fear. Lost boys grow in to violent men, coaxed by listless and angry elders.
