The Darra Dogs

Australia, 1993 (MIFF 1993, Animation)

Director: Dennis Tupicoff

A collection of warm and haunting memories from the filmmaker's childhood experience with neighbourhood dogs. The artwork is strongly coloured eel and pencil-drawn anima­tion and conveys a sense of mystery. Truthful, sometimes funny and often disturbing, these reflections provide the filmmaker with a dilemma in the present day.
