DOG WHO WOULDN'T BE QUIET, THE
[EL PERRO QUE NO CALLA]
In Argentine director Ana Katz's (FLORIANÓPOLIS DREAM) charming mumblecore sci-fi dramedy, 30-something designer Sebastián (played by the director's brother, Daniel Katz) navigates a series of temporary jobs, all while dealing with a dog who ceaselessly howls every time he goes to work, much to the dismay of his neighbors. In a series of vignettes, each representing a jump forward in time, Sebastián transforms through a succession of short encounters, just as the world flirts with a possible — and strangely familiar — apocalypse. Striking a fine balance between empathetic drama, deadpan comedy and the slightly absurd, Katz creates "a mini masterwork" (The Guardian) with an uncannily recognizable view of the near future which evokes the not-so-distant past — and our ongoing present.

Official Selection, 2021 Sundance, Miami and Minneapolis St. Paul film festivals. DIR/SCR/PROD Ana Katz; SCR Gonzalo Delgado; PROD Laura Huberman, Pablo Ingercher, Ramiro Pavón.
