Synopsis

Wie ein Moskauer Strassenhund ins All geschickt wurde und als Geist zurückkehrte.

Die streunende Hündin Laika wurde als erstes Lebewesen ins All geschickt – und damit in den sicheren Tod. Einer Legende nach kehrte sie als Geist zur Erde zurück und streift seither durch die Straßen von Moskau. Laikas Spuren folgend und aus Perspektive der Hunde gedreht, begleitet ‚Space Dogs‘ die Abenteuer ihrer Nachfahren: zweier Straßenhunde im heutigen Moskau. Deren Geschichte handelt von inniger Gefolgschaft, unerbittlicher Brutalität und schließlich von ihrem Blick auf uns Menschen. Verwoben mit bisher unveröffentlichtem Filmmaterial aus der Ära der sowjetischen Raumfahrt formt sich eine magische Erzählung über die Moskauer Straßenhunde – vom Aufstieg in den Weltraum bis zum Leben am Erdboden.

How a Moscow street dog was sent into space and returned as a ghost.

Laika, a stray dog, was the first living being to be sent into space and thus to a certain death. According to a legend, she returned to Earth as a ghost and has roamed the streets of Moscow ever since. Following her trace, and filmed from a dog’s perspective, Space Dogs accompanies the adventures of her descendants: two street dogs living in today’s Moscow. Their story is one of intimate fellowship but also relentless brutality, and is interwoven with unseen archive material from the Soviet cosmic era. A magical tale of voyagers scouting for unknown spaces.
