(USA, 65 min)
World Premiere
Director: Nancy Schiesari
Canine Soldiers explores the experience of war from the perspective of Military Working Dogs and two handlers, SSGT Marcin Radwin and SGT Danielle Jennings, who must find improvised explosive devices (IEDs) before they injure, maim, or kill troops. In a war where the rules of engagement have shifted from traditional combat to the unforeseen and the invisible, the quest to find explosives weighs heavily on a dog team, as both become prime targets. The film ultimately speaks to our co-evolution with canines and the powerful bond that keeps us human in the most inhuman of circumstances.
