STUFFED is a documentary feature film about the surprising and unique world of taxidermy. Through the eyes and hands of passionate renowned artists across the world, the film allows the audience to dip into and explore this diverse subculture, where scientists must also be sculptors. It is a genre of art, formed by a collection of people who have a fanaticism for nature, matched only by their desire to protect it. They love animals and see life where others only see death. In an unexpected twist, STUFFED reveals the importance of preserving nature, using taxidermy as its unlikely vehicle, and the taxidermist as its wild driver. Show more
