NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 8, 2014 - Kino Lorber is pleased to announce the DVD and VOD release of GHOST BIRD, a unique documentary from Scott Crocker that tracks a group of birders in a small Arkansas town as they search for the Ivory-billed woodpecker, a bird long thought extinct until rumors of sightings began to spread.

This absorbing investigation has won a number of awards such as the Cine 2010 Golden Eagle Award, the Southern Soul of Independent Film Award, and the Indie Memphis Award; it has also been an official selection at numerous other festivals, including Hot Docs, MIFF '12, Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, Festival Internazionale Del Film Di Roma, Cinema by the Bay SF Film Society, and Tales From Planet Earth.

With a soundtrack including bands such as The Black Keys and The Pixies, GHOST BIRDwill arrive on DVD (SRP: $29.95) August 26th and will also feature over forty minutes of additional footage not seen in the feature. It will be released digitally on VOD including iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Instant Video on August 26th.


Set in a murky swamp full of birders, scientists and reporters, GHOST BIRD explores the limits of certainty, the seductive power of hope, and how one phantom woodpecker changed a Southern town forever.

This thrilling eco-noir investigates the strange but true story of a small town in Arkansas overrun by a nation of birders all in search of the Holy Grail with wings - the Ivory-billed woodpecker.

Presumed extinct for over half a century, the iconic bird was seen flying through the bayous of eastern Arkansas in 2004 by scientists who announced the Ivory-bill's miraculous rediscovery.  Or was it?

Despite years of searching, the bird's fate remains a mystery.  This witty, intelligent documentary brings the Ivory-bill's blurry rediscovery into focus, revealing our uneasy relationship with nature and the increasing uncertainty of our place within it.
