Quand j’étais un animal (Manuel de taxidermie) (2004)
Inspired by the rather peculiar subject of taxidermy, Quand j’étais un animal (Manuel de taxidermie) shows us two young women, including an actress living with an intellectual disability. Over the course of a dozen scenes – which take the form of a short (fictional) taxidermy manual – the show portrays two contemporary women examining their own desires, self-image, and bodies.
