Where is my dog? is a short film focused on a young girl who loses her dog while hunting in rural America, sparking a strange sequence of events in her quiet life.
I went home in the winter of 2017 after an election that affirmed tyranny and returned to a place in rural America that felt like it had shifted. I was also coming off a deep engagement with the cinema of Abbas Kiarostami, finishing my senior thesis on absence and intimacy in the Iranian director’s films. With all this in my head, I sat down to write a film with imagined parameters that felt like an all too near-future.
