Welcome to the dark and troubling world of 'When Black Birds Fly', a dystopian animated mind-warping propaganda film set in another dimension! Set in the mysterious black and white town of 'Heaven' that is under the rule of a charismatic leader named 'Caine' who commands his citizens to unconditionally love and obey him, and to NEVER venture onto the other side of the wall where his arch nemesis steals and corrupts lost souls.
Two disillusioned children decide to ignore Caine's warnings when they become obsessed with the huge number of black birds that populate the town. After chasing one they discover a talking kitten with a broken leg, who begs them to crawl through a hole in the wall to help her. In return she introduces them to a brightly colored mind altering fruit and brings them to meet the Evil One, who attempts to teach them the forbidden knowledge that Caine is hiding from them all.
'When Black Birds Fly" is both a unique and terrifying experience that features graphic scenes of animated violence, freaky sex, mind bending nightmare imagery, an ultra-creepy soundtrack, and many other dark depravities you can't even imagine! It is truly a one of a kind experience and is recommended for ADULTS ONLY!!

Press Quotes

A journey into the deepest recesses of the human mind and psyche, a Cenobitian world that mixes pain, fear, and pleasure as such intense doses you swear somebody slipped you a strong psychedelic and threw you into enemy territory.


ScreamerClauz has cemented his place as the Gaspar Noe of neo-primitive animation, and that's a damn fine place to be... Highly Recommended.

     —DVD Talk

Referencing visual styles as diverse as psychedelic and glitch art, Screamerclauz set out to achieve a certain visual effect, and he appears to have done so successfully.

     —Cartoon Brew

Grotesque, hypnotic, and sometimes hysterical, represents Jimmy ScreamerClauz's truly unique, singular vision.
