Q/A with Richard Miron
PRODUCERS: Richard Miron, Jeffrey Star, Holly Meehl
EDITORS: Richard Miron, Jeffrey Star
CINEMATOGRAPHER: Richard Miron

In this surprising film, we follow an unusual woman named Kathy who lives with 200 pet chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys. What starts as a story seemingly about Kathy’s battle with local animal advocacy groups slowly transforms into an intimate drama about her relationship with her husband Gary, and the toll the birds have taken on their marriage and her well-being. Filmed over the course of five years, this sensitive tale of one woman’s world is ultimately one of hope about the possibility of regaining one’s life.

Richard Miron assistant edited Academy Award-nominated Life, Animated, as well as Art and Craft (Tribeca 2014, Academy Award shortlist). He was the lead editor for the recent feature documentary The Surrounding Game. He received his B.A. in Art from Yale University, where he won the Howard Lamar Prize, Yale’s top film award. He received the Marcie Bloom Fellowship in Film and was a fellow in the 2016 IFP Documentary Labs.
