Storyline

Director Lam Can-zhao leads a small film crew as they shoot a film about a stray dog in the streets of Guangzhou, leading viewers into an unpredictable, peculiar and incredible journey. Shot documentary-style while employing characteristics of hybrid cinema, The Dog's low-tech and casual style reveals a wealth of stories that reflect both the authenticity and occasional absurdity of the living situations of migrant workers and of those who otherwise live "below the line". As the debut feature film directed by Lam, The Dog reads more like a lonely rebel's exploration and revelation to the world. Written by Dong Deng
