Film: The Million Dollar Duck
(2016) The Million Dollar Duck is a documentary that focuses on the strange and wonderful world of the federal Duck Stamp Contest, the only juried art competition run by the US government. This film explores the eccentric nature of the contestants who enter each year for a chance a wildlife art stardom, while also reflecting upon the history and challenges facing the continued existence of this successful conservation program.
