Flocking, Murmurations

Living beings flock. Humans flock to celebrate, mourn, protest. No one really understands why birds, insects and mammals flock. The humans in this short film are flocking in White River Junction, Vermont to protest ICE raids, to celebrate Halloween, and to mourn the passing of a beloved young man.
