Directed by Heddy Honigmann
2019, The Netherlands, 86 min
Dutch with English subtitles

A Top 10 audience award favourite at IDFA, “prolific Dutch documentarian Heddy Honigmann’s latest effort, the profoundly moving Buddy, examines the emotional and practical relationships fostered and built between service dogs and the owners that depend on them. Buddy looks at service animal owners in the U.S. and Europe of various ages and experiences and examines what these dogs mean to their owners and the care being provided.  A young boy in Utah with visual impairment and autism finds a best friend in his animal. Trevor, an Afghan war veteran with severe PTSD, wasn’t able to leave his house for several years with his family until his dog, Mister, essentially saved his life. Buddy is much more than a crowd pleasing, uplifting movie about people bonding with their dogs. A poignant reflection on mortality, both for the humans and the animals alike. – Andrew Parker, The Gate
