In Santiago, Chile, Chola and Football are two homeless dogs—who aren’t homeless at all. Scrappy, adorable mutts, they live in Los Reyes, the city’s oldest skateboard park, kept company by dozens of teenage boys who are constantly in motion.
What began as a portrait of young skaters, soon shifted its focus to two dogs residing in the skatepark. The result is an ingeniously crafted, serene look at a community, as Bettina Perut and Iván Osnovikoff juxtapose adolescent conversations heard in voiceover with closely-observed canine routines.
