Tartan Films have acquired all UK and Ireland rights to Gyorgy Palfi’s Taxidermia from Fortissimo Films.
The film, Palfi’s follow-up to his 2003 debut Hukkle, screened in Un Certain Regard at Cannes and won six prizes at the Hungarian Film Week. It is also screening at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Taxidermia is the gruesome but humorous story of a grandfather, father and son.

DeCasto said: “I was blown away by Taxidermia in Cannes and I’m thrilled to be working with such an exciting and invigorating talent such as Gyorgy Palfi. Tartan Films looks forward to spearheading a taxidermy renaissance here in the UK.”
