Film Synopsis
The taxidermist’s hypnotic routine, their daily life and calendar celebrations reveal our gaze towards nature as a whole or the animal itself – whether it is the traditional celebration of eating deer or the Christian mass for animals and those hunters who have been shot. This is their world. Here, everything that is real lies in meat and blood, and everything that is beneath that is just an excuse to escape that reality.
