Dogs on the Inside

Win­ner of the Audi­ence Choice Award at 2014 FLICKERS: Rhode Island Inter­na­tion­al Film Fes­ti­val and the Best Doc­u­men­tary Fea­ture at 2014 Rock­port Film Fes­ti­val

Dogs on the Inside (direct­ed by Bre­an Cun­ning­ham & Dou­glas Seirup) fol­lows the rela­tion­ships between neglect­ed and abused res­cue dogs and Mass­a­chu­setts prison inmates as they work togeth­er towards a sec­ond chance at a bet­ter life: a for­ev­er home for the dogs and a pos­i­tive life out­side prison for the inmates. To re-build their con­fi­dence and pre­pare for that new life out­side, the pris­on­ers first must learn to han­dle and care for the strays. Con­nect­ed by their trou­bled pasts, the dogs learn to have faith in peo­ple again, while the inmates are remind­ed of their own human­i­ty and capac­i­ty for love and empa­thy. This heart-warm­ing sto­ry, a life-affirm­ing tes­ta­ment to the pow­er of sec­ond chances, reaf­firms the time­less con­nec­tion between man and dog, show­ing the resilien­cy of a dog’s trust and the gen­eros­i­ty of the human spir­it in the unlike­li­est of places.
