Seabirds in the City – Making the Documentary
An opportunity to hear about the making of the documentary film, Seabirds in the City. Starting with the story of the Tyne Kittiwakes, the film looks at the rise of urban kittiwake populations in Northern Europe, what they tell us about environmental change and how cities are learning to adapt to species on the move. The event will showcase the research behind the documentary, and offer a chance to hear from the filmmakers and see the film trailer. It will appeal to anyone interested in urban wildlife, seabirds, and climate change. The event is sponsored by the ESRC Festival of Social Science.
The event will include a talk about the research behind the documentary – including collaborative work with seabird ecologists in Norway – and offers a chance to hear from the filmmakers – Alan Hewitt and Kaleel Zibe, alongside Dr Helen F. Wilson from Durham University.
