This is a contemporary tale about a Mongolian dog who didn’t want to become a man.
'State of Dogs' is an astonishing mix of personal journey and social commentary. Beautiful and haunting, the film is structured by the reminiscences of Basaar, a stray dog killed by a hunter in Ulan Bator. Mongolians believe that dogs are reincarnated as human beings, but Basaar is reluctant to accept this fate. Basaar’s story is intertwined with Mongolian myth and contemporary verse, taking on the texture of a poetic fable.
