DEATH AND TAXIDERMY
(Short documentary, 23 minutes)
Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of stuffing animals. The compulsion to keep animals intact after death goes back to ancient Egypt, where animals of all description were mummified. Though the methods and motivations have changed, the desire has remained pretty constant. This video won second place in the 2016 Raw Science Film Festival category of “professional documentary longer than 10 minutes.”Animated by Jacob Rivkin.
