Beautiful Short Film About a Man Who Avoided Trouble by Taking Care Of His Rooftop Pigeons

In the first episode of his “Passion Projects” series, filmmaker Andrew Leibman created “Rooftop Refuge“, a beautifully shot short documentary about aviculturist Dave Malone.

Malone, a native of Brownsville, Brooklyn, proudly stayed out of trouble because he preferred going up to the rooftop to care for and fly his pigeons.

Calling it “love at first sight”, Malone began taking care of birds at the age of ten and has been doing so for the past forty years, watching the streets from his perch on the roof.
