Synopsis

Riggan Thompson is an ageing movie-star who has never been able to shake off his most famous role from twenty years ago, that of the superhero Birdman. In an attempt to revive his career, Thompson decides to stage his own Broadway production, an audacious adaptation of a Raymond Carver short story. Unfortunately, the looming presence of his alter-ego is never far away, causing Thompson to experience increasingly bizarre hallucinations. This technically dazzling film is shot in a series of extremely long takes. An odd but ambitious production, the film is a riveting back-stage drama, an hilarious tragi-comedy and a fascinating portrait of contemporary New York, social media, cinema itself and much more.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
