Filmed in 2021, this is a lockdown drama exploring the effects on a film cast and crew of living alone during covid restrictions. The six interlinking narratives show us how they each cope with enforced isolation: an actor fears her best performance will never be shown and succumbs to depression, an editor agonises that she cannot visit her mother who is sick, a writer yearns for a colleague who has to return to an abusive ex-partner. A Bird Flew In is directed by Kirsty Bell in her debut film, and features an ensemble cast including Derek Jacobi and Sadie Frost.
