Director Statement

Poor Pups is a short film that explores the unbreakable bond between humans and their furry companions. Set in a pre-apocalyptic world where social media misinformation runs rampant, we follow our protagonist as she navigates the challenges of maintaining her crunchy lifestyle on a budget and the love of her Pups.

Drawing inspiration from Tik Tok, The Handmaid's Tale, and the current state of our society, Poor Pups is a darkly humorous take on the beginning of the end of the world. As a filmmaker, I wanted to use this film to shed light on the ways that our society is failing our furry friends, and the lengths that we will go to protect them.

So, sit back, grab your pup, and enjoy Poor Pups – the film that will have you laughing, crying, and hugging your furry friend a little bit tighter.
