Trailer for Andrew Bird Documentary [VIDEO]
Awhile back I reported about Andrew Bird’s involvement with cinema as of recently, and now we actually have a trailer for the documentary entitled Fever Year directed by Xan Aranda. It features a hybrid of concert footage and interviews of Bird and Associates regarding a tour they did entirely during a year long phase of illness for Andrew (hence Fever Year).
“He was sick all year pretty much– always freezing, always whistling and shivering, like a baby bird”, says one of his bandmates.
The outcome is a brilliant film that really captures Bird’s creative essence as well as his seemingly unconventional way of overcoming illness while touring. The only problem is that Bird does not want the film to be released via DVD or in theaters; as of now, he wants it only screened at festivals.
I guess all we can do now is watch the trailer over and over again and cross our fingers:
