Short Film Profile


The night hums. Thunder rumbles in the distance. Dogs bark and a man runs off. Fog dissolves and dawn is breaking. Three young sisters wake up in an empty house, their parents are nowhere to be found. A long, hot day unfolds on the island, but the air is still loaded with the turmoil from last night. Oppressive nature surrounds the girls and a miracle takes place.

Film notes

Dog days tells the story of three sisters, who each in their own way deal with the sudden disappearance of their father. Past and present merge and dormant emotions surface in the sultry heat. Insects buzz, the atmosphere comes alive and madness grows gently until eventually the storm erupts and the rain arrives.
