Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook’s rambunctious collection of rescued stray and street dogs are the disarming stars of this lyrical and atmospheric video. While one diverse group, led by Sib See, barks from behind a garden gate, the spirited Bubu jumps at a backyard tree. Also present are Nua Noi (whose name translates as “not so fat”) and her sister Tun. Together, the animals convey a surprising range of moods and states, from excited nervousness to playful harmony and relaxed calm.
