Renowned British photographer Tim Walker is known for his beautiful, ethereal images. The Lost Explorer is his first foray into films; a story about a young suburban girl, Evelyn, who finds a lost explorer lying injured at the bottom of her garden. The film contains stunning scenes including a dream sequence where Evelyn and the explorer go on an adventure and see a ship filled with 300 canaries.
As patron of this project, we hosted a screening and dinner for the film’s UK debut, and wanted a special way to invite guests. Referencing the canary dream scene from the film, we sent our colonially-dressed courier to deliver bespoke bird cages containing the invitations, as well a single yellow feather.
