A Film about Zen - by Mira Arad


53 min. - Israel 2004
Distributer - Cinephil

Synopsis


Zen is the name I gave a 2-month- old Labrador dog that I raised until he was 18 months old, knowing I would have to part with him at that time. Zen was raised to become a guide dog. Departure time arrives and Zen is moved to the kennels for his training. I find the departure almost unbearable. My soul has grown attached to Zen's. I decided to shoot a film about Zen. I figure that this way I will be able to accompany Zen throughout the training procedure until he leaves for his new home with his blind owner. I begin observing and raising questions about

the nature of the relationships between people, dogs and Zen...
