The Clay Bird

A beautiful film. Portrays the spiritual, emotional and cultural struggles of a family during a time of political upheaval. The conflict and turmoil in the country reflected deeply in character development. Clever infusion of traditional musical performances with suggested and hidden messages. Poignant use of metaphors and subtlety.

“The bird’s trapped in a clay body
Its’ feet bound by worldly chains
It tries to fly but fails
The bird’s trapped in a clay body
Rainbow colored birds circle freely in the sky
Their brilliant splendor a rapture for the eye
The bird’s trapped in a clay body
Its’ feet bound by worldly chains
It tries to fly but fails
The bird pines with longing
It yearns to spread its wings
It wants to join the joyful birds
Leaving its fleeting home
The bird’s trapped in a clay body
Its’ feet bound by worldly chains
It tries to fly but fails
The clay bird laments
Why did you infuse my heart with longing
If you didn’t give my wings the strength to fly?
Its’ feet bound by worldly chains
It tries to fly but fails
The bird’s trapped in a clay body
