About the Event

Space Dogs

Directed by Elsa Kremser and Levin Peter

(Austria, 2019, 91 minutes)

 

Laika, a stray dog, was the first living being to be sent into space and thus to a certain death. 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 brutality of animals and humans, and is interwoven with unseen archive material from the Soviet cosmic era. A magical tale of voyagers scouting for unknown spaces.

Film followed by Q&A with dirs. Elsa Kremser and Levin Peter.

Parking available in West Lot 4, $5 flat rate charge, credit card required.
