Winner of both the Audience and Grand Jury Awards for Best Documentary Feature at the 2016 Slamdance Film Festival and produced by 3-time Academy Award®-winning documentary filmmaker Mark Jonathan Harris (Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport, Best Documentary (Feature), 2000), this is not a film to be missed.

Feathers will be ruffled and some egos will be bruised, but for one contestant, winning “the Olympics of wildlife art” will be life-changing.
