This film is presented during the event La Nuit de la danse on March 18, 2022 from 05:30 pm at Théâtre Outremont.

Choreographed by Margie Gillis for artist Susan Paulson, Crow explores the complexity of crows through pure movement, restlessness, sensuality, and stealth. In this film adaptation, the director portrays the feeling of both physical and inner entrapment, revealing our true nature and reminding us of the ties that bind us to these innately intelligent birds.
