In the late 19th century, extravagant hats adorned with spectacular feathers were all the rage. In south Florida, a gamekeeper tries to halt the massacre behind the flourishing trade. Directed by the great Nicholas Ray, this remarkably lucid film is striking for its subtlety as it explores the complexities of an ecological tragedy: the powerlessness of the individual, the limits of activism, poaching and its grey areas, the ravages of consumerism – absent regulation, the blame is pinned on capitalism. The unforgettable showdown between the protagonists – as poignant as it is epic – becomes an allegory for our current dilemmas and paradoxes.
