Dog Years 2004 Not Rated

3 mins United Kingdom Director. Richard Penfold, Sam Hearn

A beautiful, simple and funny short film about our profound love of pets. Ben is 39 in dog years and, approaching mid-life, reflects on the complex relationship he has with his master. Made on 8mm film for just £5, Dog Years shows how far an innovative idea and a good script can go. Witty, moving and authentic, Dog Years is a wonderful example of the possibilities of the 'no-budget' film.
