Broken Wings is a unique documentary-music film that unveils the untold story of bird poaching in Southeast Asia. The film captures the journey tropical birds make from forest to cage, revealing how forests are emptied on a massive scale, threatening more than 1,500 bird species with extinction. Yet almost nobody knows about it.
You might have never thought about it, but where does your pet bird come from? Bird poaching is a global problem that has devastating consequences for ecosystems and biodiversity. Southeast Asia is home to over one fifth of global bird species. This richness has brought about large-scale wildlife trafficking throughout the region to fulfill demand for the pet trade.
Globally, 49% of bird species are declining, one in eight are threatened with extinction.
In an effort to raise awareness on this critical issue, nature focused WaterBear Network and Studio Birthplace teamed up with renowned composer Ludovico Einaudi to tell this story.
