Storyline

A day at Luther W Kuhlman & Son's taxidermy shop on Long Island, in 1996. UPS delivers forms. Ron Kuhlman prepares a stag, killed that year in the Catskills; his assistants, Bill Arsell and Jeffery Kuhlman, are working on a woodcock and a bearskin rug. The work involves saws, needle and thread, tacks, hot glue gun, stapler, and clay. Arsell talks briefly about when and why he came to work there. When the stag is finished, Ron signs, numbers, and dates the underside. The film begins with a quick shot of live animals together and ends with shots of a display of stuffed beasts at a museum.

A great documentary
11 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film in Sundance and enjoyed it tremendously. It is very short, and my husband wasn't thrilled by it. But my husband is a complete idiot. If only everybody could see this documentary... It is about the shells and coverings and fronts that people construct and hide behind every day.
