Seven Crows a Secret

Top of page

The most intelligent of birds, or a noisy nuisance? Sacred symbols, or spies from the underworld? Whether worshipped or despised, crows and ravens have always seized our attention. Seven Crows a Secret explores the fascinating natural history of corvids, and the timeless impact these black rogues have had on the imagination. This film is an offbeat portrait of an eccentric creature, blending remarkable wildlife sequences with animation, poetry, music, art, and interviews. Out of this eclectic mixture comes a new understanding of crows and ravens as extraordinary birds who have played a unique role in cultures around the world.
