An indelible and quietly haunting study of a nameless woman (memorably played by co-director Verónica Llinás) living with a loyal pack of stray dogs in silent, self-imposed exile in the Pampas, on the edge of Buenos Aires. Almost dialogue-free, the film follows this hermit across four seasons as she patches up her makeshift shack in the woods, communes with nature, and forages for (and sometimes steals) food, making only the briefest of forays into the city and only fleetingly engaging with other people. This is the story of a woman who lives on the edge, not only geographically but also of her own humanity. Dog Lady is filmed with an attentive and sympathetic eye, yet it is careful never to “explain” its subject—but be sure to stay to the very end of the film’s extended final long shot.

Laura Citarella is a member of the production company El Pampero Cine. She is also a musician, and in 2009 she released her debut album, “Laura Citarella”, produced by John Stewart. Verónica Llinás was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is an actress; known for Glue Dog Lady is her debut feature film as director, co-directed with Laura Citarella.
