From The Booth

Go fetch.

“The exchanges between a service dog and its owner are born of need but the attachment that develops is far more complex. Award-winning Dutch director Heddy Honigmann turns her gaze to the inner workings of six canine and human pairs to reveal what’s really given and received. A veteran with PTSD, an autistic child with physical challenges and a blind WWII vet each rely on a four-legged partner to assist them. From enabling people to occupy public spaces to easing anxieties, animals help their humans navigate physical and emotional living...Buddy captures canine humanity and life-altering trust at work.”

- HotDocs 2019. A must-sit for all dog lovers.
