Space Dogs

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.

Warning: SPACE DOGS is Not Rated, and contains some graphic content and scenes of animal violence that some viewers, especially cat lovers, may find distressing. Viewer discretion is advised.

In Russian with English subtitles.

91 minutes. Documentary. NR.

“Brutal but also deeply sensitive; a complex work that got under my skin.”
Film Comment

“Ingenious; Kremser and Peter connect a roughly hewn space traveling animal history with modern stray subjects.”

IonCinema

“No one leaves this movie unchanged.”
Publico

“Radical and rigorous; one of the documentaries of the year.
