My Life As A Turkey

Hutto’s life was forever changed when a local farmer left a basket of eggs on his doorstep. Having an interest in imprinting young animals, he incubated the eggs and waited for them to hatch. Hutto went on to raise the 15 newborn Turkeys into adulthood.

The film won an Emmy in America and the prestigious best of festival award at the UK’s Wildscreen Film Festival. Described in the Times as 'possibly the best documentary of the year' My Life As a Turkey is an unmissable piece of filmmaking with a structure that breaks all genres.
