The DOGumentary

In the past couple of days, we’ve been working on filming a mini documentary about the stray dogs in Mumbai in order to help an NGO called “The Welfare of Stray Dogs”. Stray dogs in Mumbai are copious, and you can see them roaming the streets everywhere you look. A lot of documentaries that look at India seem to focus on it’s poverty, which composes about 11.8% of people living below the poverty line, so I think that, what we are doing, will be an important contribution to shedding light into other issues in India, specifically doggie issues. So far, it’s been an amazing and exhausting experience. We’ve gotten to explore so much of Mumbai by just walking around and looking for good things to shoot (with a camera).

Yesterday, I got pooped on by a flock of pigeons, which I interpreted as a good omen so I’m pretty happy about it.

Today, we went to Versova Village, a fishing village by the coast that was, surprisingly, very beautiful and engaging, even with all the trash and questionable smells.

I’m looking forward to seeing much more of Mumbai and understanding how WSD helps the stray dogs of Mumbai.
