The Book of Birdie

Directed by Elizabeth E. Schuch
Narrative Feature
USA | 91 min | 2017

When a fragile, imaginative teenager is placed in a dying convent, will her unusual obsessions and hallucinations become a mark of sainthood or a dark heresy?

The Book of Birdie is a peek in to the mysteries and strangeness of coming of age as a weird girl. Storytelling through visuals, psychology and the imaginative power of magical realism is the heart of my approach. The film has an all female cast and 70% female crew, and seeing better representation in filmmaking is a cause I’m passionate about.
