The Screen Guide

Dogs of Democracy is an essay-style documentary about the stray dogs of Athens and the people who take care of them. Author and filmmaker Mary Zournazi explores the conditions of austerity and life on the streets through the eyes of the dogs and peoples’ experience. Through her uniquely Australian perspective, the film gives insights into peoples’ lives, hopes and dreams in a time of crisis. This is a universal story about love and loyalty and what we might learn from animals and peoples’ timeless quest for democracy.
