Even

Birds in love

A traditional short story about two birds – a nutcracker and a jay – who fall in love with the beautiful daughter of a human. The two bicker over which one she could fall in love with. In despair at the thought of not being good enough for her, one of the birds stops flying high.

Recordings: The Even videos were recorded in the village of Topolinoe, Tompo region, Yakutia between 2007 and 2012 by Dejan Matić and Alexandra Lavrillier.
