Review: Surprises from an animal hoarder in documentary ‘For the Birds’
Kimber Myers, June 13, 2019
Those who watch their local news are familiar with this far too frequent story: authorities rescue countless animals from an overcrowded home. But after showing horrific images of starving, bedraggled creatures, they move on to the next headline without the time to explore the narrative further. With “For the Birds,” director Richard Miron offers an empathetic character study of an animal hoarder who defies expectation, making a documentary that does the same in the process.
