  • Vancouver is home to one of the largest murder of crows in North America, and their daily migrations - that mimic the time and direction of human traffic flows - are part of this city s landscape. By focussing both a camera and a microphone on this local particularity, it becomes clear that the crow and the city dweller have alot more in common than the latter would like to think. Crows have been placed in a mythological role in many different human cultures, and in "Eating Crow" this role is explored, as the crows are forced to bear the projected fears, conflicts and anxieties of contemporary urban life.
