One Nation Under Dog (2012) Trailer
We're a nation of dog lovers, but unfortunately there are not enough of us to go around. Each year, millions of dogs are abandoned, and more than 4 million are euthanized. This heartfelt documentary explores the conflicted and passionate relationships we have with dogs, inspiring us to rethink how we treat them. Following three separate storylines by different filmmakers, One Nation Under Dog explores the lengths people will go for their furry friends.
Three unique perspectives from a trio of award-winning directors power this anthology of stories. Jenny Carchman evokes an unlikely empathy for both dog owners and bite victims, while Amanda Micheli shares the heart wrenching loss of mourners in a pet bereavement group. Ellen Goosenberg Kent's loving portrait of an accidental rescuer is a quiet, moving study of a selfless life and her footage inside a puppy mill leaves an indelible mark on one's idea of breeders. Alternating between shocking and inspirational, the film presents a view inside a quiet crisis unfolding under our noses.
