Space Dogs

Documentary Rated: NR 91 min
Streaming Online: Fri, Sep 18—Thu, Sep 24

Space Dogs, an award winning film, is an affecting oddity — part history, part eulogy, part elegy — based on Laika, the Moscow stray who became the first dog shot into space. Laika looks back to earth to see her children, Russian street dogs, coping with the world. The picture is one of persistence and survival and has nothing to do with Disney.” — Laurence Kardish, co-artistic director, FilmColumbia

“Like Disney directed by Andrei Tarkovsky.” — John Bleasdale, Cinevue
“The film draws us through its play toward darker, too-seldom-considered sides of human and doggy nature.” — Pat Brown, Slant Magazine
“The result isn’t pleasant, but it does effectively provoke.” — Teo Bugbee, New York Times
