“We were open going into this trip, and were excited to see what we would encounter. But we never expected the reactions and encounters that we experienced there. Join us on a journey to a place that people don’t know much about, where it’s much different than what you might expect. “Field of the Blackbirds” is a travel movie from three guys who will definitely return to this area again.” – Christoph Schöfegger
