Nature documentary A Flock of Students captures footage of a species rarely caught on camera: a colony of young human 'freshers' who have migrated south to Dunedin. Over footage of nesting, university pie-eating contests and social gatherings, narrator Sydney Jackson provides insights into student display rituals, social groupings and early, "somewhat unfocused" attempts at courtship. As winter bites, temperatures fall below zero, and the male of the species builds up resistance by exposing itself to all available germs. David Kilgour (The Clean) provides the music.

It has taken only a few days, and now amazingly the colony is filled. The young birds begin to venture from their own territories to communal areas, especially the watering holes. Here, with the aid of a massive intake of liquid, they practice their rudimentary social skills.
