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 Earthas 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 is interwoven with unseen archive material from the Soviet cosmic era. A magical tale of voyagersscouting for unknown spaces.
“It’s like a dog version of Grizzly Man. Brutal but also deeply sensitive –a complex work that got under my skin.” ~ Jessica Green, Film Comment
