The Commoners (Penny Lane and Jessica Bardsley | New York, NY | 12 min.)

Read an interview with the director on the Rooftop blog!

In 1890, a wealthy eccentric named Eugene Schieffelin collected every bird ever mentioned by Shakespeare and released them into Central Park. The only one to survive in the New World was the European Starling, now among the commonest - and most despised - birds in America. Shown in 2010.
