My daughter rescued an abandoned city pigeon chick and named it Alfred. It sheltered eight weeks in our house, where it grew up and learned to fly in our living room. It was such a funny and curious chick, it made me completely change my mind about city pigeons.
The day before his or her release I quickly made some 16mm film recordings of Alfred and made this short film as a keepsake for my daughter and a memory to Alfred.
