  1. Loved this Renata! At first poignant resolving to a happier end. Towards the end I was smiling while reading the subtitles, also saying to myself he looks like a nice werewolf dog. Thank you for sharing this.


    1. You’re welcome, Allen, and thank you for watching! I was really looking forward to hearing from you, what you’d say, and I am glad you liked it. A friend of mine who works at a Berlin cinema, which hosts open screenings and a short film festival, asked if I wanted to make this little movie after he had read the story about my uncle’s dog. So I did! And I’m glad I did it. I screened it at the open screening, and the audience was really into it. It was a very rewarding time working at the film, and the audience reactions have been great, too. I am going to submit it to a British documentary festival today, because I really would love for people to see how things go in Bosnia – especially in the light of current events – but also because I think that the film has a positive message. Thanks again for watching and sharing your thoughts!
