Animals have always had a special status in cinema, often being portrayed as soulmates or as guardian angels of people facing an existential crisis. The short film ‘Project Bau‘ is no exception to this rule, but the story it proposes is far from leaving us indifferent. Sajan Jose is a director for whom it is not necessarily the consistency of the narrative that is the main element, but the intensity of the emotions that the camera can capture. This project focused on the emotional symbiosis between a man and a dog should not be perceived in the parameters of terms such as predictable or unpredictable, since its narrative thread is not external, manifested entirely in the action itself. Still, it’s rather an interior one, an inner journey of self-discovery. In this sense, the director doesn’t want at all costs to keep his viewer breathless, but to plunge into the mental and sensory universe of a man unable to overcome, on the one hand, the burden of loneliness and abandonment, and, on the other hand, the alcohol addiction.
