‘On The Wing’ is a new documentary which tells the story of Portland, Oregon’s Chapman Swifts. Each fall, these birds roost in the chimney of a Portland elementary school and put on an amazing nightly aerial display to the delight of hundreds and thousands of observers. The event has become a cult phenomenon over the past 15 years and is a shining example of people choosing to coexist with nature rather than smoking it out. ‘On The Wing’ captures the community, energy, and excitement of the entire Swifts phenomenon.
