            participant in a hit-and-run accident.

  1. Spectator Bird

            Adapted from the novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Wallace Stegner and set in

            1960 in post-war Denmark, Spectator Bird addresses the modern issue of genetic engineering through the

            lens of a love story between Astrid Von Jaeger, an enchanting Danish countess, and Joe Allston, a quiet,

            unpretentious American literary agent who, shaken by his grown son’s possible suicide, travels to

            Denmark with his wife Ruth in search of his Danish roots.
