Anima is a 1998 independent drama written and directed by Craig Richardson. Richardson won the Original Story Award at the 1998 New England Film & Video Festival for this film. The movie follows filmmaker Bill (Bray Poor), who is making a documentary about taxidermy, mummification, body preservation and cryopreservation. He finds out about an old married couple, Sam (George Bartenieff) and Iris (Jacqueline Bertrand), who escaped from Nazi Germany and retained knowledge about Nazi experiments involving mummification of human bodies. Bill arranges to meet the couple for an interview at their secluded New England farmhouse where they are hiding away from the world to forget the horrors of the past. Once there, he discovers that the couple have a puppet theater in their basement where they recreate events from the Third Reich era using stuffed creatures. Bill becomes convinced that Sam and Iris are former Nazi's, and his findings threaten to disrupt their peaceful existence.
