Dog of my Dreams

by Mortimer, Roz

Film: 16mm 2001


This contemporary bestiary takes a subversive and tongue in cheek look at the relationships between girls and dogs. A documentary, a love poem to the dog. As told by a delicious medley of images, texts and voices from Piero di Cosimo to Joan Baez to Enid Blyton to Virginia Woolf to the girl next door. In a series of surreal tableaux, small girls have distant encounters with big dogs whilst grown women tell their stories of childhood pets, family malaise and repressed sexual tensions.
