In this poignant portrait of six guide dogs and their owners, Heddy Honigmann explores the close bond between animal and human. Honigmann questions the owners respectfully and with genuine concern about what the animals mean to them.
Buddy is an ode to the fighting spirit of the main characters and a loving portrait of the deep bond which exists between man and dog.
This is a dog-friendly screening.
