How a Moscow street dog was sent into space and returned as a ghost.
Laika, a stray dog, was the first living being to be sent into space and thus to a certain death. According to legend, she returned to earth as a ghost and has roamed the streets of Moscow ever since. Filmed from a dog’s perspective, SPACE DOGS follows the adventures of her descendants: two street dogs living in today’s Moscow. Their story is one of intimate fellowship but also relentless brutality, and is interwoven with unseen archive material from the Soviet cosmic era. A magical tale of voyagers scouting for unknown spaces.
Austria, 2019, 91min, Russian with German and English Subtitles, Directed by Elsa Kremser and Levin Peter
