Birds of Paradise

Through her personal photos and footage, a woman tells the story of a life that was almost destroyed before it even started – thanks to HIV. In the 80s, when the unknown virus was first raging, she found herself falling in love and bringing a child into this world under extreme duress. But the changing of the seasons and the regenerative force of nature carried her on its wings and propelled her into the future. The film takes us on a journey of initiation, mingling motherhood and resurrection.
