BIRDS OF PASSAGE presents a lyrical journey through the everyday lives of two young Uruguayan songwriters. Ernesto and Yisela have moved to the capital, leaving behind their respective hometowns on the borders of Brazil and Argentina. After many years of composing songs that reflect their origins, both decide to explore new horizons and each seeks to fulfill the dream of recording an album. While Yisela struggles to reconcile the emerging possibilities of a career in Uruguay with her plans to move to Argentina, Ernesto confronts personal conflicts that threaten to sabotage his creative passion. The film fuses the arts of documentary film and music, interweaving the songs and stories of these two young composers. With striking vérité cinematography and an unforgettable soundtrack, BIRDS OF PASSAGE explores the challenges of being a young artist and the art of searching, inside and outside oneself.

Good Music. And forget Australia as "down under" -- Uruguay is the real "down under" especially musically along the border with Brazil and Argentina with the mixing of cultures. Fine young musicians follow their bliss and their young lives head in unexpected directions over the course of the 2010 film. I'll look them up and see if I can buy a CD from each; I will if I can and all good Karma to them.
