WATCH: Eagle flies over Paris with camera on its back

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."
