Description

FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE THE MILLION DOLLAR DUCK dives into the wonderfully eccentric world of the Federal Duck Stamp Contest – the only juried art competition run by the U.S. government. The Duck Stamp is among the most successful conservation tools ever created. It has also spawned a uniquely American subculture overflowing with talent, ego, art, controversy, big money, and migratory waterfowl. The film follows six artists as they competitively paint waterfowl in their obsessive quests to win the “Olympics of wildlife art.”
