Zeina Durra's The Seventh Dog is a black comedy set in New York. Soraya and her boyfriend Yusif's relationship frays to snapping point as a series of chance encounters and tasks mean the FBI, Homeland Security and their apartment block's superintendent's remaining six dogs throw their lives into disarray. This award winning short portrays the poignant, sometimes funny, sometimes tragic truths of the post 9/11 lives of Arabs in New York City. The Seventh Dog was selected and premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival in 2005, and has gone on to win several prestigious short film awards for its direction, production and performances.
