Andrew Bird: Fever Year (with "Londoners")

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

After culminating months of the acclaimed singer-songwriter’s most rigorous year of touring, Andrew Bird crosses the finish line in his hometown of Chicago – feverish and on crutches from an onstage injury. Andrew Bird: Fever Year wavers between the tour and footage of Bird working on material in his rural converted-barn studio. Not simply a performance film, the documentary also provides insight into Bird’s songwriting process, as well as the evolution of his craft. It is the first to capture his precarious multi-instrumental looping technique and features live collaborations with Martin Dosh, Jeremy Ylvisaker, Michael Lewis, and Annie Clark of St. Vincent. The documentary is a must-see for fans and is of interest to anyone captivated by intense artistic dedication, the songwriting process, and/or musical improvisation. Catch the documentary at Sidewalk—Bird owns the film and there are currently no plans for release.'

Screening with the short film "Londoners"
Directed by Joseph Ernst
DOC | UK | 11 min.

Londoners is a vintage film about modern day London. Shot entirely on a 100 year old wooden hand-cranked 35mm camera, Londoners documents modern day London as never seen before. It shows the city as a community: a piece of contemporary history about what it’s like to live in London today. In an era obsessed with digital technology, by an increasingly camera-sceptic public, Londoners features thousands of people interacting directly with the camera, as was always the case in times gone by.
