Searching for Nigel
Film, installation
Searching for Nigel is a film about love and distance, humans and animals, lost carrier pigeons and messages left on read. It’s a story about how a boy falls in love with a bird and how a bird falls in love with a statue.

The film takes its starting point in the story about Nigel, the lonely gannet who fell in love with a concrete bird made by a group of scientists on Mana Island in 2017. In a mix between a missing people documentary and a romcom, fact and fiction are blended as we meet different people connected to Nigel, all asking the same question: Why did he leave us?
