On all fours

Doc. expérimental | | couleur | 6:40 | Pays-Bas, Mexique | 2013

There is a German Shepherd in Tepoztlan who guards a brick villa where the walls are painted white and the furniture is modern. In the kitchen there are people chatting, the TV is on and the German Shepherd is waiting by the door. The villa is enclosed by a wall and you can hear church singing from the mountains, especially in the garden, where there is a sprinkler, purple flowers on the lawn and a woman dressed in Baby Blue.
