“Life of a mutt” tells true, intimate and authentic stories from the perspective of stray dogs. Combining documentary material with hand drawn animation and voice over, we are crossing between genres and forms of documentary, fiction and animation, trying to give our silent heroes a voice.
The inspiration comes from ancient Indian, Russian, and British stories. Combining seven destinies/scenes in one life story- from birth to a birth again, we witness their dignifying fight for survival. Talking about existential questions, such as the marginalized groups, nature and the environment, the care for the posterity, highlighting esteemed values such as love, friendship, trust, we want to reach audience from 6 to 106.
