The Final Flight of the Passenger Pigeon

by Hank Graham

Poster for The Final Flight of the Passenger Pigeon by Hank Graham

In an island rainforest somewhere in the tropics, a team of scientists search for the last remaining member of a species of bird that may or may not be extinct. The canopy doesn’t let in much light, and the fact that the radio will only pick up the frequency of a 24/7 chicken wing advertisement does nothing to quell the team’s feelings of total isolation from the outside world. The Final Flight of the Passenger Pigeon explores the intersection of intimacy and loneliness, and what it means to feel like you’re the last living member of your species.
