Les États généraux du film documentaire 2018 Reruns A Dog’s Luck

A Dog’s Luck ( Het geluk van honden )
Nina de Vroome
2018 - Belgique - Couleur - 23'

Several dogs are being trained as patrol dogs. Their owners teach them the choreographies of police work: biting and letting go, following and staying, always on their owner’s command. Longingly gazing upwards, the dogs seem intimately connected with their owners. They are tamed and domesticated; their life is directed by humans. At the same time they are always the elusive other. A gap divides humans and animals, and from the other side, these dogs see us.
