ReelEarth: A Dog in Dubrovnik

Posted on 1/14/2020 12:00:00 AM in What We're Watching

A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

Since the first dog was domesticated some 15,000 years ago, humans have (presumably) been asking questions about our bond with our canine companions. When I travel and see a dog, I think of Harley, my 14-year-old yellow lab, and I ask: what is the difference between Harley, a dog in America, and this other dog in another part of the world? Does anyone love this dog? In this ReelEarth collection film, set against the naturally dazzling shores of Dubrovnik, filmmaker Barbara Vekarić turns a camera towards a young woman named Diana. She is a former Philip Morris executive and an avid hiker. Diana also loves dogs, even her unruly shelter dog named Monkey. We hear from Diana’s boyfriend, who chimes in with a few incendiary comments about what dogs reveal about the parenting qualities of their human companions. We also hear from the mountain rescue team that allows the unruly Monkey to transform—along with Diana—into stellar members of the Croatian rescue team. Just how important can the relationship between a human and a dog be? Check out this heartwarming story…and invite your dog to join you.

Produced by Barbara Ve
