Why Not a Sparrow

2003, 12 min, color, sound

Why Not a Sparrow is a hallucinatory piece, in which semi-narrative sequences of a woman on a woodlands vision-quest mix with mythological images, including dancers wearing animal masks. Condit has fashioned a lament for all the wildlife — particularly birds — at risk of extinction due to human cruelty and intervention. The soundtrack features several songs with lyrics written by Condit herself.

Cast: Theresa Columbus, Ron Hickerson, Kristina Kromer, Didier Leplae. Musical Score: Paul Amitai. Composers: Theresa Columbus, Stephen Vogel. Lyricist: Cecilia Condit Singers: Theresa Columbus, Sara Niechlanski.
