For October, we have selected the documentary satire Whose Dog Am I?, in which the dog breading ideologies are metaphors for human national and social politics, as well as 5 Dreamers and a Horse, in which contrasting visions of Armenia are brilliantly sketched out through four protagonists. Both films can be accesed from 23 October.
Through four protagonists aspiring to fulfil their dreams, three contrasting visions of Armenia are sketched out: there is the lift operator in a hospital, a kind of remnant of urban Sovietism, who wants to travel into space; the farmer in search of a perfect wife, revealing a rural social structure that is still dominated by the patriarchy; and finally, the young feminist and queer girls, who simply want to live their lives, enamoured with emancipation and symbolising the infiltration of Western societal changes, which are also bitterly contested on this side of the Ararat.
The director of the film, member of the Hungarian minority from Romania (in the region of Transylvania), while searching for the perfect “bride” for his pure-breed Hungarian Kuvasz (his alter-ego), gets involved in dog breeding politics. During the story he gets under the influence of different ideologies, but because of his social sensitivity, he gets disappointed by all the ideologies - so he fails as a dog politician. But his hope for a better, normal and decent life never dies, and he always finds a new idea… Whose Dog Am I? speaks in a humorous way about serious social and political issues.
