Angels Watching Over Me

USA, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Fiction)

Director: Dave Monahan

A quirky urban parable about a faithful pigeon feeder led into temptation on his way to offer the daily bread. Well served by its cast of two off-Broadway actors and a flock of pigeons trained by the 'The Birdmen of Harlem', this low-budget B&W student film has a gritty, high contrast look, achieved by shooting and pro­cessing the film entirely on reversal stock.
