“If You Love Your Dog, Your Cat, You Must See “Bitch”
An Incredibly Soulful And Moving Experience
Quite Possibly Your Most Meaningful Film This Year
Travel From The Alleyways Of New Delhi To Sweden As She Muses Philosophically While Navigating The Perils Of Her Journey
A stray dog from the alleyways of New Delhi finds itself transported to Sweden, where she is thrust into a series of interactions with some pretty colorful people. And in the end, perhaps there’s a reason life brought her there.”
Director’s Statement: The filmic experience is both immersive and highly subjective, and eschewed in the way that we are asked to go on a journey with one or several characters. I was intrigued by the notion of doing just this, through the direct point-of-view of a single character, a dog. To see the world from a creature’s perspective where basically everything and everyone is bigger than us, and yet, being subject to people’s expectations of what a dog is supposed to be, I wanted to see if we could study ordinary people’s behavior through the eyes of man´s best friend. This is a journey through a single character’s perspective, and a study of form and character. I hope you enjoy it.
