Animus Animalis (A Story about People, Animals and Things) (16+)
Animus Animalis (istorija apie žmones, žvėris ir daiktus)
Director: Aiste Žegulytė
A taxidermist, a deer farmer and a museum worker live in the environment in which the line between reality and artificiality has become imperceptible. It's a world where not only deer and boars but also plastic alligator mannequins are being hunted, while stuffed animals compete for the most alive-looking posture and legitimate gaze. The most important exhibits are set up in fabricated nature's glass-case, sitting between aerosol-free trees and fake snow. Animals are looking from all the sides - dead or alive - they won't stop observing you.
The film is screened in the original language with Belarusian subtitles
