Man is Not a Bird1965

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 3.1
MAN IS NOT A BIRD is an antic, free-form portrait of the love lives of two less-than-heroic men who labor in a copper factory. For this first feature, following years of making documentaries and experimental shorts, Dusan Makavejev and his crew set up shop in Bor, a mining town in the mountains near Yugoslavia's border with Bulgaria, interviewing the workers in the region and even shooting footage inside the local ore factories. Yet the result is hardly a staid tribute to the working class. Also featuring seductive Milena Dravic, who would go on to star in Makavejev's groundbreaking WR: MYSTERIES OF THE ORGANISM, MAN IS NOT A BIRD is one of cinema's most assured and daring debuts.
