DOCUMENTARY FEATURE


IN ATTENDANCE DIRECTOR BILL MARIN Abandoned by man and forced to survive in his urban jungle, STREET DOGS OF SOUTH CENTRAL profoundly depicts the everyday struggles of life in the inner city for man’s best friend. Scavenging through trash cans for food, sleeping in abandoned buildings, and navigating city traffic are all part of these homeless dogs’ daily lives. Lacking the love and care they so desperately need from humans, they are forced to rely on their animal instincts for survival—in an entirely man-made world. Narrated by QUEEN LATIFAH, this feature length documentary follows the story of Elsie—a mother struggling to raise her litter of puppies in a harsh urban environment. Every day, Elsie and her brood travel the streets of South Central in search of food and shelter. Their daily struggle for survival in the ghetto is brilliantly captured and emotionally revealed in this captivating film. STREET DOGS OF SOUTH CENTRAL captures the truly challenging conditions in which these canines live and reveals how the dogs adapt with their innate abilities.
