Flightless

SBS September 11, 2010

Kevin McManus, a man at war with his wife and his life, seeks refuge in the peace of the Christchurch Public Art gallery, but instead is driven to psychic meltdown by the haunting bird-people in Bill Hammond's extraordinary The Fall of Icarus. Shaken by his experience McManus decides to go in search of Hammond's pictures and explanations of them. The artist's unavailability restricts him to questioning and observing those whose lives have also been affected by Hammond's paintings.
