Stretching from Brooklyn's waterfront to the Upper West Side of Manhattan, the Onassis Cultural Center New York's spring festival, “Birds: A Festival Inspired by Aristophanes” (April 22-July 8), spans New York City in search of birds, both allegorical and real. The festival's centerpiece is an adaptation of Aristophanes’ classic comedy, The Birds, first performed in Athens in 414 BC. In connection with this event, Metrograph presents a program of four fine, feathered films that will turn the cinema into a veritable birdhouse.
