Elizabeth Lo, Shane Boris
2020 | Turkish | USA
Through the eyes of three canine outcasts roaming the streets of Istanbul, a city where it is illegal to euthanize stray dogs, documentarian Elizabeth Lo paints an intimate picture of the life of a city and its people. On their routine searches for food and shelter, the untethered dogs discreetly wander through the urban landscape, their gaze offering insight into the often-overlooked corners of Turkish society: loveless marriages, political protests, and refugees without sanctuary. A critical observation of the complexities of human civilization, STRAY is a sensory voyage into new ways of seeing, and an exploration of what it means to live without status or security.
