Dogs of Home
director: Daniela Repas
original title: Dogs of Home
running time: 11 min.
Bosnia was divided by war in the 1990s. The older population stayed while the younger population left. The film’s two mediums, documentary and animation, fluctuate along the border of two worlds, which separated time and historical events but are united by a longing for home and family. People are like dogs: they never forget their way home.
„Motivation to tell this particular story is grounded in love, instinct and urgency. It speaks of family, loss and resilience, with points of access to the culture of Bosnia…“ D. Repas
