George Butler talks about the Lord God Bird, the ivory-billed woodpecker
George Butler talks about The Lord God Bird, his new film about the ivory-billed woodpecker

“Matt Anderson interviewed George Butler when he was promoting the Endurance movies. I didn’t realize how softspoken he is until I saw him myself. His movements are as small as his voice. But the audience was rapt.

“He spoke more about the ivory-billed woodpecker than about his filmmaking techniques, and I think that’s how he likes it. My question for Butler was about the diversity of his subjects: Pumping Iron, Shackleton, Roving Mars, John Kerry, and now the possibly-extinct-but-maybe-not ivory-billed woodpecker. He said he wants to keep the world guessing by making films on as broad an array of subjects as possible.”
