Dreaming of the Golden Eagle

Brothers Axel Emil (13), Eivind (10), and Eirik (8) are obsessed with wildlife and birds. They are out in the forest almost every day taking pictures and looking for birds. But there is one bird they have yet to see: the Golden Eagle, one of Norway’s largest birds. In this feel-good wildlife documentary we follow the brothers on their quest to see the Golden Eagle. The film premiered at IDFA in 2012 and got a Norwegian theatrical release with a few other short films.

Reviews

14-the-village-voice-logo«Ree has an appreciation for nerds; his joyful documentary short “Dreaming of the Golden Eagle” revels in the geek-out of three young bird-watching brothers.» – Daphne Howland, Village Voice.

2000px-aftenposten_logo-svg«Dokumentaren Drømmen om kongeørnen er noe av det mest sjarmerende jeg kan huske å ha sett på lenge. Tre brødre elsker fugletitting, og deres største drøm er å se en kongeørn. Regissør Benjamin Ree (24) bruker bare syv minutter på å vise at han er et stort filmtalent.»  – Ingrid Åbergsjord, Aftenposten.
