Title: The Dead Bird Reel
Film Description: Unintentially bizarre educational footage of children that discover death when they find a dead bird. Four children flying kites,walking on log. Sad music plays in background. An Alex Trebec narration pipes in as they find the bird dead. And play with it, at first trying to get it to move its head and wings like it once did. Looking extremely sad,the three boys and one girl march in single file to a private ceremonial buriel of the bird. They take a shovel, dig a whole in the ground, bury the bird, and put a stone on top of the mound that says "here lies a bird that is dead." They stand around crying and afterwards visit the grave every day, even in the pouring rain, crying over the bird. By the end they forget all about it and resume playing like they once did.
