"Taxidermy: Stuff the World" (dir. Morgan Matthews, 90 mins) is a BAFTA-nominated documentary that f­ollows the fate of four competitiors as they prepare for the 2005 World Taxidermy Championships in Illinois. From the Canadian ‘Taxidermy God’ Ken who is trying to mount a life-sized prehistoric Great Elk to nine-year-old deer hunter Victoria, the film draws detailed portraits of the vastly different people that taxidermy attracts. The film is followed by a short presentation by Robert Marbury, co-director of the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists.
