Space Dogs | Carolina Theatre Virtual Film
September 27, 2020
An event every day that begins at 2:00 am, repeating until October 1, 2020
Laika, a stray dog, was the first living being to be sent into space and thus to a certain death. According to a legend, she returned to Earth as a ghost and has roamed the streets of Moscow ever since.
Following her trace, and filmed from a dog’s perspective, SPACE DOGS accompanies the adventures of her descendants: two street dogs living in today’s Moscow. Their story is one of intimate fellowship but also relentless brutality, and is interwoven with unseen archive material from the Soviet cosmic era. A magical tale of voyagers scouting for unknown spaces.
“Disney directed by Tarkovsky.”
“No one leaves this movie unchanged.”
“Radical and rigorous; one of the documentaries of the year.”
A portion of the proceeds of streams of this film sold through the Carolina Theatre of Durham’s website will benefit the nonprofit that operates the historic venue.
