Flat Dog Town

Short film, Germany, 2017, 6 min. 32 sec.


The everyday life of flat dogs. Street poetry of Berlin and the last rolls of Kodachrome.

Stop motion documentary capturing the hidden world and fascinating habits of some of the most mysterious and stunning creatures of the city. The unparalleled images shot using low-definition super 8 cameras and long expired film stock allow us to experience face-to-face encounters with an endangered species, struggling for survival in their natural habitat beneath our feet.

With original music by Stefan Agaton, who also created the score for Max Andersson's classic film shorts Spik-Bebis and Varför är det så mycket svart, and Mikael Nilzén.
