DOGFRIEND, 18min., Germany, Drama/Comedy
Directed by Maissa Lihedheb
In the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement spreading globally and the ongoing conversation of what it is like to exist as a racialized body in the West, what is often left out are the moments that happen during intimacy. When the bedroom door is closed and the world goes away, who is left in the room and what do they desire? The realities of being Black and Brown bodies does not leave you, the histories and narratives they carry exist everywhere. HUNDEFREUND tells the story of two people searching to be seen, and realizing what it means to see each other.
