PARIS, France —

"Freedom, the Flight of an Eagle" is a crowdfunded project from France that aims to one day bring back the white-tailed eagle out of captivity and into the country's open air. 

The above video is one of many in what's called "docu-fiction" series. Co-creators Jacques-Olivier Travers, a bird enthusiast, and Muriel Barra, the producer and co-writer, film their subject, Rio the white-tailed eagle, in a natural habitat fending for survival but set to theme of "a philosophical tale, an ode to freedom." 

More on the project can be found here. (FYI: The page is written in French and requires a translator to be viewed in English.)

More videos can be seen on the YouTube channel.
