Debra Granik’s STRAY DOG
July 08 only
“Beautifully shot and edited with all the flow of a feature fictional film, Stray Dog feels truer than our own judgements…” – Marina Galperina, Animal New York
The Director of WINTER’S BONE & LEAVE NO TRACE tails a trailer-park-living, PTSD-afflicted Harley biker as he grapples with war memories, the treatment of veterans, and discrimination against immigrants.
The film, shot with humility and grace, follows Stray Dog as he caravans on his Harley with fellow vets to pay tribute to their fallen brothers at the Vietnam Memorial. Meanwhile, back home in southern Missouri where he owns and operates an RV Park populated by a community on the margins, he forges a new life of domesticity with his Mexican wife Alicia.
As Stray Dog strives to be the man he wants to be for his family and community, he continues to tally the cost of war, bearing witness to the soldiers coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan — both the dead and the living.
Directed by Debra Granik. 2014. 105 min. HD Digital.
