    Dead Birds (Free Screening)

    In 1961, Gardner organized an expedition to the highlands of New Guinea to film the Dani people. He stayed for six months to create this essay on the themes of violence and death most dramatically witnessed within the intense ritual warfare between rival Dani villages. The contrast between the everyday lives of the film’s subjects and the perpetual cycle of fighting encourages reflection on the role of violence in human life and culture in general.
