World champion Canadian taxidermist Ken Walker undertakes the biggest challenge of his career in this funny portrait of an eccentric artist-hero. Walker decides to build a life-size Bigfoot, based on frames from an iconic 1967 movie, to reveal at the 2015 World Taxidermy Championships. His motivation in sculpting Bigfoot is not to take home the grand prize, but instead the hope that his recreation will prompt more information about Bigfoot to be revealed. This quirky documentary is a wry, funny celebration of an artist’s dedication to his craft—no matter how obscure. Discussion with director Dan Wayne and subject Ken Walker, moderated by Chandler Ferrebee (VAFF)
