“The Last Song of the Nightingale”

Back in December 2018 we published information about a request for crowdfunding for a documentary on the Nightingale. Soon afterwards, we were able to report that the funding had been successful.

We are delighted to report that the film will be premiered at the 2020 Virtual Birdfair on Thursday 20th August.

The makers are also in the process of auctioning a piece of artwork created for the film, a one of a kind piece by street artist ATM called ‘The Nightingale & The Bomber’. They have added a nice little excerpt from the film telling the story behind the piece, which you can see here: https://sunbitternmedia.com/the-auction. The current bid stands at £3,000. The auction will end on Sunday 23rd August at 18:00.

The auction was launched on Friday morning on Chris Packham & Megan McCubbin’s show, The SIBC, which you can catch up on here: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=292496975370636.

There are still some prints left too, for those who may not have space for the original!

The film will appear here when launched: https://virtual.birdfair.org.uk/index.php/the-last-song-of-the-nightingale-thursday-7pm/

Finally, a short behind the scenes interview on the creation of the film was shot, which will also be going live at the virtual Birdfair on Thursday 20th August, here: https://virtual.birdfair.org.uk/index.php/thursday-behind-the-scenes-of-the-last-song-of-the-nightingale/
