Gallows Bird is a full-length cinematic descent into the tormented soul of an unsuccessful actor, a balancing act between finding an identity and the obsessive desire to be recognized.
Somewhere between mystery-thriller and tragic comedy, it is also an investigation into the elusive sense of being lost in our modern society, in which the projection of a “valuable” identity counts for more than its actual possession.
