by Hattie Naylor
directed by David Sullivan
This remarkable story of Ivan, a four-year-old who fled an abusive household and found sanctuary on the streets with a pack of wild dogs, is a true story ripped from the headlines. But as relived by the protagonist as a young man, Ivan and the Dogs unfolds like a fairytale in which the human world lacks humanity and the animal world has it in abundance. Like the best of Grimm's this gripping story, told with lyrical wistfulness by Naylor, has a mythic resonance.
