Observation Diary

Observation Diary

The film is a journey that follows the observation diaries written by Amit Geffen – a young bird-watcher. The diaries beautifully and elaborately describe the observations he conducted from his childhood until his death at 21 from a rare disease.
Why would a young boy, who knows that his days are numbered, choose to dedicate his time to birds? Why would he want to document all the birds he saw?
By following the diaries, the film explores the need to observe and document the world around us, and the way in which it fills our lives with meaning.
