‘Dead Birds’

A landmark ethnographic film, as well as a startling allegory of human nature, Robert Gardner’s portrait of tribal life in the isolated New Guinea highlands marks its fiftieth anniversary at Harvard University, the institution that largely facilitated it. There are two screenings; Gardner will be present for the second screening on October 11.
