CIFF Selects Presents BUDDY
Time & Location
About the Event
In this delightful documentary about six amazing service dogs and their heroic owners, legendary filmmaker Heddy Honigmann (who's directed some of the most exceptional documentary films of the last 30 years like Metal and Melancholy, O Amor Natural, The Underground Orchestra, Forever), explores the close bond between animal and human.
Whether grabbing a sheet of paper from a printer, helping to push in a syringe, comforting a veteran with PTSD while he sleeps, or simply being a friend to a child with autism, Honigmann captures the beautiful, intimate moments that define these relationships. She also questions the owners, in her own characteristic way — respectfully and with genuine concern rooted in a deep trust — about what the animals mean to them.
A deeply felt ode to the fighting spirit, Buddy is an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind documentary film.
