Set in a murky swamp peopled with birders, ornithologists, gawkers and politicians, Ghost Bird explores the limits of certainty, the obsessive power of hope, and how one phantom giant woodpecker changed a sleepy Southern town forever.

This thrilling eco-noir investigates the strange but true story of a small town in Arkansas overrun by a nation of birders all searching for the Holy Grail with wings – the Ivory-billed woodpecker.  Presumed extinct for over half a century, the giant bird was seen flying through nearby swamps by scientists who finally announced its rediscovery in 2005. Despite years of searching, the bird’s fate remains a mystery.  This witty, intelligent documentary brings the Ivory-bill’s rediscovery into focus, revealing our uneasy relationship with nature and the increasing uncertainty of our place within it.
