Audubon’s 432 masterpieces, created between 1810 and 1841, captured movement, sound and drama as if he was filming with a camera.  He saw nature as theater and art, birds as complex, emotional characters.  This was a provocative rejection of the stiff, “objective” drawings required by the scientific community.

Two hundred years later, leading wildlife filmmaker Matt Aeberhard embraces Audubon’s heritage in two bold films:  Birds of America, the contemporary remake currently in production of his painted images; and, Audubon, which will incorporate the spectacular “Birds” wildlife footage into a narrative feature.
