Inspired by the true story of a woman living on the streets with her parrots, this animated short aims to raise awareness of the older members of our society - those who live alone, who have no one to turn to, and whose biggest fear is dying alone and unnoticed.

Michael Kalopaidis is an animation producer and founder of Zedem Media, Cyprus' largest and longest-running animation studio. He is also a founding member of the Cyprus Animation Association and the president of the Larnaka Famagusta Cinema Society, a non-profit organisation. The Parrot Lady is his first film as director.
