Kein halbes Leben

Documentary Film, AT 2018, 70 min

Based on the story of her mother, Sybille Bauer accompanies three lives that are defined by an intimate connection between human and dog. And in doing so, tells of lost relationships — of separation and the attempt to take one’s life back into one’s own hands. A calendar slogan says that a dog is man’s best friend. This film reformulates this wisdom: for some people, a dog is the very best companion to regain one’s own power.
