The Soi Dog Foundation (SDF) is pleased to announce the release of the full-length feature documentary Soi Dogs, produced by Environment Films. The 66-minute documentary is far from the standard charity campaign film. Although it does give an insight into the day-to-day challenges of the foundation, it is also a human story, one that combines tragedy and compassion with humor and excitement. It is inspirational and involving throughout and is suitable for the entire family to watch.
Director Ella Todd describes her time with the foundation as: “A wonderful strain. During filming, we saw dogs that had been shot, attacked by machetes, even set on fire, yet these stoic animals still managed to find trust in people. We saw first-hand what a remarkable charity the SDF is: A charity full of hope and one that is making significant progress and a real difference, not only to the individual dogs but also the bigger picture.
“Leaving the UK to retire to Thailand sounds like a dream, but a dream can quickly become a nightmare, and paradise can turn on you in a second. Following key members of Soi Dog carrying out their daily responsibilities, this documentary is a testament to their valour, compassion and dedication in helping the estimated 20,000 dogs living wild in Phuket.
Faced with horror and inhumanity each day, the foundation’s managers battle on regardless, but when adversity turns into incomprehensible personal tragedy, is their will strong enough to fight another day?”
