About the Film
'For Dog Lovers Only' grew out of the daily walks I take with our dog, Amy. She loves to meet up with her special friend down at the beach, a large mongrel we’ve named ‘Big Kahuna’. The project is an homage to a beautifully-shot, romantic film called 'For Lovers Only' (vimeo.com/markpolish), directed by Michael Polish and starring Mark Polish and Stana Katic, which in turn echoes the spirit and aesthetic of the French New Wave. And voila, the whole thing was shot on my iPhone.
About the Charity
Kirsten’s Zoo is a government-registered charity devoted to finding homes for Hong Kong’s unwanted dogs and cats. It’s a grassroots organization run by Kirsten Mitchell and a small team of volunteers. With very little money or publicity, they foster abandoned and abused animals, nurse them back to physical and mental health, and then try to place them in forever homes.
Kirsten and I often walk our dogs together, and I hope this small project can draw some attention to the tireless work she's doing for Hong Kong's homeless pets. Kirsten is always looking for people willing to foster a pet, for a few days or a lifetime.
Thanks for your support!
