Mother Knows Best: The Natural Way to Train Your Dog – Carol Lea Benjamin

The Wild Side of Dogs

Raw and never succumbing to sentimentality or anthropomorphism. There is no music track to manipulate your feelings, instead only natural sounds recorded on location giving you a real sense of where you are. When the human characters speak, what they say is not translated or subtitled, allowing the viewers to observe how the dogs relate to human beings through understanding our gesture and tone rather than words. From the sheep dogs of Sardinia, to the strays fighting for survival on the streets of Bucharest, a filmmaker immerses himself in the daily lives of dogs.
