Academy Award-winning filmmaker William Friedkin examines the intersection of science and art as he follows the painstaking efforts of conservators at the J. Paul Getty Museum to restore French master Jean-Baptiste Oudry's original vision of two of his largest, most resplendent paintings, Rhinoceros and Lion.

William Friedkin is the director of The Exorcist and The French Connection, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Director. His recent films include Rules of Engagement, The Hunted, and Bug.
