Audubon the Film is a noble effort to provide in one hour a visual account of John James Audubon’s extraordinary life and the miraculous creation of Birds of America. DVD’s are available for purchase. The movie can also be streamed on Amazon Prime.
As it seems is often the case with valuable art, Birds of America has had its fair share of scandal and theft. One of the more outrageous heists occurred in Lexington, Kentucky, not far from the various places Audubon lived along the Ohio River. American Animals brings awareness to the importance of Birds of America as a record of natural history and as an object of desire.
