Director Mary Zournazi explores her heritage, refugees and canines in the documentary Dogs of Democracy. It’s a film that tells fascinating stories about the history of a city through the eyes of dogs, and the roles these dogs play in the ever changing society within Athens. Andrew was able to talk to Mary about her film as well as what inspired her to tell this tale.
Dogs of Democracy screens at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival on the 16th of July at 9:30am. You can purchase tickets here. The screening is a charity screening, with the money raised going towards the RSPCA.
For those interested in reading Mary’s book which she co-authored with director Wim Wenders, Inventing Peace: A Dialogue on Perception, then you can find more out about it here or purchase it on Amazon here.
