FILM GUIDE WALTER POTTER THE MAN WHO MARRIED KITTENS
Resting somewhere between art, science, and curiosity are the works of Victorian Taxidermist, Walter Potter. Rather than posing his animals as if they were in nature, he began building his creatures into human situations. This film focuses on five Potter enthusiasts, each with their own thoughts on the importance of Potter, his work, and his legacy.
