Dogs of Democracy is an essay-style documentary about the stray dogs of Athens and the people who take care of them. Filmmaker Mary Zournazi explores life on the streets through the eyes of the dogs and peoples’ experience. Shot on location in Athens – the birthplace of democracy – the documentary is about how Greece has become the ‘stray dog of Europe’, and how the dogs have become a symbol of hope for the people and for the anti-austerity movement. A universal story about love and loyalty and what we might learn from animals.
Please come in big numbers to keep more documentary screenings possible!
See you there.
