SFDocFest: PARIAH DOG
First show: June 06
Pariah Dog is a creative documentary focusing on several eccentric street dog caretakers in Kolkata, India. Shot over three years, the film paints a kaleidoscopic picture of the city of Kolkata, seen through the prism of four outsiders and the dogs they love. These men and women have found meaning and purpose in their shared mission to care for neglected street dogs, who have existed in the towns and villages of India for thousands of years. For some, this mission is enough; for others, dreams of a better life are always near.
Directed by Jesse Alk. USA, India. 77 mins. 2019.
