We are delighted that our film HONDS by director Josefien van Kooten is selected for the Golden Calf Competition! The film will premiere at the 40th edition of the Dutch Film Festival that will be held from September 25 – October 3rd 2020 in Utrecht. The Golden Calf nominations will be announced during the Golden Calf Gala at the festival.
During a dog training the tension between love, control and powerlessness becomes visible in the reflection between man and dog. People that have problems with their dog come to dog whisperer Ron for help. Their dogs often cause many problems; they refuse to listen, show anxious behaviour, or are aggressive and bite. It seems not the dogs, but the owners themselves that need further training. In observing long shots we see how dog owners struggle with the complex relationship between man and animal. The love for our dogs often runs deep, but so does our wish (and necessity) to make them obey us; which might only be possible if we become more like a dog ourselves.
This film is made in the context of Teledoc Campus with the support from NPO, CoBO, NPO Fund and the Netherlands Film Fund.
