The Dogs

A battered woman and her young son find themselves stranded in the middle of the night on a strange, threatening housing estate, desperate to get to a main road and safety. All they need to do is cross a dark field...

Film notes

Based on a short story by Hanif Kureishi. Although ostensibly a surreal little horror film, as director I also wanted to explore the fear and paranoia within our modern society - the urban legends of animal attacks, the dangers of going out after dark, and the very real fears mothers have for the safety of their children, the worry that no matter what they do they cannot ever fully protect them from the horrors of the world.
