SPACE DOGS

SPACE DOGS
of Elsa Kremser, Levin Peter
Country: Austria
Year: 2019
Duration: 91'


Laika, a stray dog, was the first living being to be sent into space. According to a legend, she returned to Earth as a ghost and has roamed the streets of Moscow ever since. Following her trace, and filmed from a dog’s perspective, Space Dogs accompanies the adventures of her descendants: two street dogs living in today’s Moscow. Their story is one of intimate fellowship but also relentless brutality, and is interwoven with unseen archive material from the Soviet cosmic era.

Declaration

film director

“During the six months we spent with the dogs on the streets of Moscow, we often felt observed and scrutinised by them. Little by little we realised that we knew these animals only as part of our world; we didn’t know ourselves as part of theirs. That’s why we made street dogs the protagonists of our film. These animals on the streets are the ever-questing discoverers of unknown worlds. On their obscure nocturnal prowlings they encounter people who are also strays and outcasts, stranded in the ruins of time.”
