Dog Lady (La Mujer de los Perros)


Argentina. Dirs. Laura Citarella, Verónica Llinás. 2015, 95 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles. Verónica Llinás co-directs and gives a memorable performance as a woman who lives with a pack of stray dogs in a shack she built herself in the plains on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. The nameless “Dog Lady” does not use money, does not even speak. She forages for food, gathers water, and has a sexual encounter. She is an unexplained, mythic character wandering the periphery of the city, living freely off what nature provides. A notable selection at New Directors/New Films and the Rotterdam International Film Festival, Dog Lady was filmed over the course of three years with an all-female crew and Llinás’s own dogs.
