Listen back to this Film Ireland podcast, recorded during DIFF earlier this year, as Gemma Creagh talks to Kathleen Harris, Director of the documentary Birdsong.

Ornithologist Seán Ronayne is on a mission to record the call of every bird species in Ireland – that’s nearly 200 birds. At once inspiring and cautionary, his journey reveals the beauty and importance of sound, and what listening can tell us about the state of our natural world.

Birdsong screened on Thursday, 29th February at The Lighthouse Cinema and will be airing on RTE One on Sunday 26th May 2024.
