The Dog Pound

Dir: Manuel Nieto Zaz / Toronto , Chicago, Mar del Plata San Sebastian / 110 min

David, a feckless slacker has just failed his university exams and has one year to re-write them.

His father, determined to put him to good use, sends him off to a remote coastal town to oversee the building of a new house.

The resort’s motley crew of off-season unemployed residents become David's inevitable mates, but girls are scarce…

As the house takes shape from drunken stupor to stoned laziness and onto mushroom induced hallucinations - we are entertained in this tragicomedy comparable to the best contemporary Latin American cinema.

From the makers of 'Whisky'.
