Animus Animalis

  • Lithuania
Audio Tracks 

A taxidermist, a deer farmer and a zoology museum worker live in the surroundings where the line between reality and artificiality has almost become imperceptible. While the dead beasts compete for the most vivid posture and the most real look in their eyes, the human keeps trying to stop the time and bring back life to things in which life has long been absent.
