Grey Parrot Studios presents Life with Alex: A Memoir.  This 55 minute video is a compelling tribute to the famous African Grey Parrot known as Alex. This DVD contains never-before-released footage of Alex using meaningful human speech to convey his daily thoughts and feelings. We learn about Alex’s daily life, relationships, and accomplishments, all of which changed forever what we know about how animals think.  Also included with this DVD are “Special Features” of Alex, Dr. Pepperberg and the students who worked with Alex.  A portion of the proceeds of this film will be donated to The Alex Foundation.
