Premiering at Sundance 2021 in the Feature category, The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be Quiet is a surreal tale by written and directed by Argentinian filmmaker Ana Katz, about a simple man trying to lead a simple life with his dog.
Sebastian (Daniel Katz) is an ordinary man in his thirties devoted to his loyal dog and working in a slew of temporary jobs. As he moves fitfully through adulthood, he navigates love, loss, and fatherhood – until the world is rocked by a sudden catastrophe, upending his already turbulent life. Photographed in stark black-and-white imagery, and awash in ruminative metaphor, Katz captures Sebastian’s midlife coming of age in slices of life both specific and universal as he struggles to adjust to a world that is perpetually changing – and might be nearing its end.
The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be Quiet stars Julieta Zylberberg, Valeria Lois, Mirella Pascual and Carlos Portaluppi.
