    • Synopsis
    • Every screening of HE HATED PIGEONS is presented with a uniquely improvised, ever-changing live score. Linked with the uncertainty of the protagonist’s journey, the audience is part of something which has its own intrinsic impermanence.

      “A one-off bespoke experience which blends cinema and performance.” Wendy Ide, Screen International at IFFR

      Simplicity is what yields complexity. Nowhere in recent memory is this more apparent than in the dazzling and heartbreaking He Hated Pigeons. Greg Klymkiw, The Film Corner

      “This film is a remarkable experience not soon forgotten.” Jason Gorber, Twitch Film
