synopsis

A middle-aged, grumpy neighbour accuses an immigrant girl of stealing his dog.

Director Statement:
There is an old Russian saying, "if you call a dog a pig, eventually it will snort". Our tiny film, shot in Lisbon as an etude within the framework of the international Erasmus Master's program Kinoeyes, deals with the themes of immigration, racism, sexualized abuse and harassment. In doing so, we have tried to find an entertaining and accessible way to talk about these serious issues.
