As you loll about at the beach and get too hot, detour to pick up three films about dogs. Available for viewing in the Film Library-room 206 Lasserre Building!
A man’s best friend. A woman’s best friend. And nobody’s friend. Umberto D. is an Italian neorealist masterpiece.
Wendy and Lucy is American naturalist realism at its finest.
And Best in Show? That’s an improvisational comedy about a dog show. It’s not really about the dogs at all.
Best in Show (Christopher Guest 2000)
Umberto D. (Vittorio De Sica 1952)
Wendy and Lucy (Kelly Reichardt 2008)
