In Still Life With Animated Dogs we meet the canine companions who helped shape animator Paul Fierlinger's evolution as an artist and as a man. Watch the Peabody Award winning animated film streaming free today on ITVS's Indies Showcase.
Still Life with Animated Dogs traces Paul Fierlinger's tumultuous life from Stalinist Czechoslovakia to the United States as seen through his relationships with his dogs. It is Fierlinger's loyalty and caring for his dogs that sustains him even in an atmosphere of oppression and suspicion. Each dog serves as a marker of its master's personal growth from a misanthrope to an artist who appreciates the divine powers of nature.
