DOGS OF HOME
Dogs of Home is a docufiction narrative short set in Bosnia, where an animated memory reveals the documentation of the present.
The war in Bosnia tore many families apart, including the director’s. Structured as a hybrid of live footage and black and white animation, this poetic short film depicts the struggle of the director and her grandparents to deal with the physical separation and memories of their past life, forever changed by the war. The film reveals their love for each other, resilience and determination to carry on with their everyday lives despite the constant feeling of loss, longing and loneliness.
