Zeytin, fiercely independent, embarks on adventures through the city at night; Nazar, nurturing and protective, easily befriends the humans around her; while Kartal, a shy puppy living on the outskirts of a construction site, finds companions in the security guards who care for her. The disparate lives of Zeytin, Nazar and Kartal intersect when they each form intimate bonds with a group of young Syrians who share the streets with them. Whether they lead us into bustling streets or decrepit ruins, the gaze of these strays acts as a window into the overlooked corners of society: women in loveless marriages, protesters without arms, refugees without sanctuary. STRAY is a critical observation of human civilization through the unfamiliar gaze of dogs and a sensory voyage into new ways of seeing.


In addition to the Q&A available in the box to the right, you can also access a fantastic panel with director Elizabeth Lo, Executive Director of Harvard Law School’s Animal Law & Policy Program Chris Green, Executive Director of Cinema St. Louis Cliff Froehlich, and CEO and Co-Founder of Safe Humane Cynthia Bathurst. The panel is moderated by multiple Emmy-Award-winning television/radio personality Jeanne Sparrow.
