A woman's love for her pet ducks, chickens, geese, and turkeys—all 200 of them—ignites a battle with local animal rescuers and puts her marriage in jeopardy.

FOR THE BIRDS is a feature documentary by Richard Miron, from Executive Producers Cindy Meehl (director of BUCK) and Brian Reed (host and co-creator of S-TOWN). The film had its World Premiere in-competition at Sheffield Doc/Fest in June 2018, followed by its North American premiere at AFI Docs in Washington, DC.

"Poignant," "surprising," and "consistently engrossing" —Allan Hunter, Screen International

"Deeply humanistic... it's a film not to be missed" —Noah Gittell, Washington City Paper
