DOG WHO BROUGHT HOME THE SUN, THE cover image
The student animated film, The Dog Who Brought Home the Sun is beautifully illustrated with stunning visuals and a moving soundtrack.

The story tells how a dog chases the sun to bring food home to his person in the middle of winter when they are without food or resources.

The visuals of this film are its greatest asset. I love the image of the dog running to catch the bird. The dog's motion is beautifully executed as it chases the sun, and then a bird across the sky. There is no narrative to the film, but there is extraordinary background music which pushes the story forward with its pulsing crescendos when the dog is running and quietness when he brings the bird back to his human person. When the man sets the bird free, the snow melts, the fields turn green and all is good again.

The message is about never giving up and believing that things will get better.

I give this 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for 8 to 14 year olds. It would make a lovely interstitial for a youth or family film festival. Reviewed by Juror #5, KIDS FIRST!
