Andrew Bird: Fever Year USA, 2011, 80 minutes Director: Xan Aranda
Filmed during culminating months of the acclaimed singer-songwriter's most rigorous year of touring, Andrew Bird crosses the December finish line in his hometown of Chicago - feverish and on crutches from an onstage injury. Is he suffering hazards from chasing the ghost of inspiration? Or merely transforming into a different kind of animal "perfectly adapted to the music hall?" FEVER YEAR is the first to capture Bird's precarious multi-instrumental looping technique and features live performances with collaborators Martin Dosh, Annie Clark of St. Vincent, and others.
