My Life as a Turkey

My Life as a Turkey is a television episode that premiered in 2011 in the UK on BBC and in the US on PBS. It won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Nature Programming, it was based on the book Illumination in the Flatwoods by Joe Hutto, who co-wrote and hosted the TV program. My Life as a Turkey describes, they imprinted on him. He led them on walks through the Florida woods, he describes how he learned their language and was impressed by their instincts and native intelligence. After about a year, they became independent of him; the film shows footage of turkeys at all these ages, is a re-enactment of the material described in Hutto's book. In relation to the film, Joe Hutto has been profiled in newspapers, with a focus on the program and book; the book was mentioned in The New Yorker. “Their language and their understanding of the ecology shows a remarkable intelligence. But their ability to understand the world goes much further than just communication. I came to realize. I felt a sort of embarrassment when I was in their presence - they were so in the moment - and their experience of that manifested in a kind of joy that I don’t experience and I was envious of that.

I was learning new things about turkeys everyday. But this was not just about how they live their lives - these animals were showing me how to live my life also. We do not have a privileged access to reality. So many of us live either in the future - and betray the moment, and in some sense we forget to live our lives - and the wild turkeys were aways reminding me to live my life. I think as humans we have this peculiar predisposition to be always thinking ahead - living a little bit in the future - anticipating the next minute, the next hour, the next day - and we betray the moment. Wild turkeys don’t do that, they are convinced that everything that they need, all their needs, will be met only in the present moment and in this space. The world is not better half mile through the woods, it’s not better an hour from now, it’s not better tomorrow - that this is as good as it gets. So they reminded me to do better, to not live in this abstraction of the future, which by definition will never exist.

And so we sort of betray our lives in the moment and the wild turkeys reminded me to be present, to be here.” "I learned many things - but maybe the most important was that we are unaware of the overwhelming complexity that exists all around us. And I’ll never see the world in the same way again."
