Synopsis

Told through the eyes and hands of acclaimed artists across the world, the film explores the diverse subculture of taxidermy where sculptors must also be scientists, seeing life where others only see death. These passionate experts push creative boundaries. In an unexpected twist, STUFFED reveals the importance of preserving nature, using taxidermy as its unlikely vehicle, and the taxidermist as its wild driver.
