BUDDY is presented by our partner, ATB.

In this poignant and carefully composed portrait of six dogs and their owners, Heddy Honigmann explores the close bond between animals and humans. Honigmann questions the owners in her characteristic way - respecfully and with genuine concern rooted in deep trust - about what the animals mean to them. BUDDY is an ode to the fighting spirit of the main characters and a loving portrait of the deep bond between man and dog. 
Stream BUDDY from May 15 - May 28.
