A syllabary (silibario) is set of written symbols representing the syllables of a language. But is there such a thing as a language of birds? How can such an elaborate set of sounds – whether vocalized by birds or dedicated human bird-whistlers – not be language? Or is it, rather, a pure form of sound poetry? Filmed (like Corneliu Porumboiu’s fiction thriller THE WHISTLERS on the same topic) on the island of La Gomera, Marine De Contes’ SILABARIO drifts serenely through a physical space made uncertain by mist and interweaves the poetry of Miguel Ángel Feria into imaginary dialogues between birds and people. (Adrian Martin)

This film will be shown as part of the screening SHORT FILM PROGRAMME 4: THE SCOPE OF DREAMS.
