Submitted. Animal advertising is no joke with Bird Co. Media coming to theatrical screens on July 18. Internationally recognized BC based documentary filmmaker Jason Bourque follows 2 aspiring Canadian entrepreneurs, Bradley Miller and Kabir Ali, as they launch a highly controversial advertising company in Mumbai which incorporates exploiting live birds to carry advertising banners across the skies of India.
Jason Bourque and his production team were in India to capture the footage as these businessmen profited into the millions. The eventual public backlash was harsh and helps find the breaking point where morals will still prevail in a capitalist economy.
