Mavie (Lolita Chammah) is a wide-eyed 27-year-old girl who is clumsy, beautiful, and full of doubts. Dreaming of a future as a writer, she moves to Paris and meets Georges (Jean Sorel), an aging bookshop owner who no longer expects much from life. Their unlikely connection forges a unique relationship that changes Mavie's path forever.
An official selection at the Berlinale and Mill Valley Film Festival, STRANGE BIRDS is a “lilting ode to serendipity and the consequences of long-ago actions” that “interweaves romance, literature, ecological concerns and the eternal beauty of Paris with a light touch” (Screen Daily).
