Last Dogs of Winter Screening

Mon, September 9, 2013 7:00 PM

One man, 150 Canadian Eskimo dogs and lots of polar bears fill the screen in the gripping documentary by Costa Botes, an award-winning filmmaker from New Zealand.

Last Dogs of Winter will screen beginning at 7 p.m., Monday, Sept. 9 in the Meacham Auditorium, Oklahoma Memorial Union, 900 Asp Ave., Norman.

The film documents controversial dog breeder Brian Ladoon, who for 40 years, worked to breed and maintain a colony of Canadian Eskimo dogs and helped to repopulate them with the indigenous peoples of the Arctic.

The director of the film, Costa Botes, will be on-hand to discuss his film and the point of view he chose to tell the story of this out-spoken man.

Co-sponsored by the OU Film and Media Program and the OU Union Programming Board, the screening is free and open to the public. For more information or accommodations on the basis of disability, contact Karl Schmidt at (405) 325-3020 or karl.schmidt@ou.edu.
