Brittany is a thirteen-year old girl with autism, a keen football fan and a supporter of Melbourne’s Western Bulldogs. When she spies a real bulldog sitting outside her window, she slips out of the house. She unwittingly embarks on a strange adventure leading to an abandoned farmhouse, where she strikes up an unlikely friendship with a runaway boy. The lead role is played by a young teenager with special needs.
Go the Dogs had its world premiere at the 2011 Berlin International Film Festival and screened at numerous other international festivals including the Melbourne International Film Festival, NZIFF and Kyoto International Children’s Film Festival.
