The life and career of John James Audubon, author of The Birds of America, is a triumphant American story. He came to this country when it was young, explored it when it was raw and made art that reminds us today of where and how we began. Rara Avis is an ambitious project that should inform and captivate viewers today just as his paintings did when he unveiled them to the world. Directed by two-time Oscar nominee Al Reinert. Produced by Cina Alexander and John Aldrich.
