The trailer for Fever Year
, the new documentary following Andrew Bird
, has found its way online. The film follows a year in the life of the multi-instrumentalist, through touring, recording, and dealing with sickness. Viewers get to see Bird's home recording studio and backstage footage. We also get to see Bird battling his year long illness as he ponders "Have I simply been ill this year, or am I just turning into another type of animal?"
The film, directed by Xan Aranda, has been making it's way through the film festival circuit, but this may the only glimpse that the general public may get of Fever Year
. Bird, who owns the rights to the film, does not want it released in theaters or on DVD, so take advantage of it Bird-watchers. If you happen to be a cinephile, hop on over here
to see where you can catch Fever Year
at a festival near you.
