BIRD OF PREY - $20
by Director Eric Liner
The Philippine Eagle is a bird of extremes. It’s the world’s largest and rarest eagle, found only in the Philippines. Fewer than 800 individuals remain today. In 1977, world-renowned cinematographer Neil Rettig filmed the first images of the Philippine Eagle in the wild, transforming the bird into a national symbol. But today, with a rapidly expanding human population facing serious political, economic, and environmental turmoil, the eagle’s plight has fallen out of public consciousness.
“Bird of Prey” follows Neil’s return to the Philippines as he embarks on a grueling expedition alongside a small but devoted group determined to protect the eagle. Together, they answer the question: What will it take to save a species from extinction?
