Welcome to our 2015 Festival Staff Picks column! We’ll be posting some first looks at Festival Films to look out for on the 2015 Film Schedule. Check back to the AFF blog for new Staff Picks each week!
This was a heart-wrenching film to watch. The topic of police shooting family pets is a difficult one, and it’s handled thoughtfully and in a balanced way by the filmmakers. The film shows the conflicted feelings of the police officers’ who could be confronted with the same situation. Being a strong animal rights advocate, I applaud the filmmakers for the depth of examination they put forth, and for creating such a compelling story.
