Borne By the Birds is fictional biography of a man that had lived for 400 years and in fact a subtle critique of our recent past, mainly the 20th century. We see how our protagonist influences the world around him and vice versa. Through the animations rhythm we see how things come to be and how they disappear back into nothingness. On the other hand we follow a more personal and humane story that involves the main character here, his wish for eternal life and when achieved his wish of salvation. A short narration here is a pensive introspection of the protagonist who becomes a witness to worldly misfortunes from a different point of view, a sort of a step back from society into a neutral realm of universal understanding.
