Yes they are! and from the the number people who have acquired a dog since lockdown, many are finding a new found and deeply profound joy in dog ownership. Dogwoof (yes that is the name of the distributor) are releasing an incredible new film on their streaming platform called Stray.
The film is a debut feature directed by Elizabeth Lo which is a love letter to dogs and follows the lives of three stray living on the streets of Istanbul. It explores what it means to live as a being without status or security whether they be on two legs or four.
As they search for food and shelter, Zeytin, Nazar and Kartel embark on inconspicuous journeys through Turkish society that allows an unvarnished portrait of human life and their own canine culture.
Join the watch party on the release date of the film on Friday March 26th and if you fancy the chance of winning a prize bundle for yourself and your dog, just upload a picture or video to social media channels of your dog watching Stray tagging @dogwoof using #Straywatchparty
