The Dogfriend

Dark Humor 14m 2021

Struck by the supreme loneliness of her circumstances, a young woman wishes for her dog to become her boyfriend and then endures the myriad consequences when her wish comes true. The Dogfriend is a careful-what-you-wish for dark comedy about the monster that is straight, cis, white male privilege and equally a story about the various cycles and iterations of loss. Ultimately, it’s about a woman who chooses herself, despite the fear of being a woman alone. It weaves together undeniable themes of this past year; solitude, loneliness, whimsy, and absurdity, while also integrating the mountainous and ongoing, collective conversations we’ve shared around gender, race, and systems of privilege. Last but not least, it is an ode to the great city of New York, which has proven, now more than ever, to be a unique and strange haven of magic and possibility.
