‘She’s Allergic To Cats’ Exclusive Teaser & Poster: A Lowly Dog Groomer Descends Into Surreal Chaos When He Finds His Dream Girl
“She’s Allergic To Cats” follows Michael Pinkney (played by Michael Pinkney), a dog groomer in Hollywood who strives to be more than his lowly job. He lives in the shadow of the film industry and resides in a crappy, rat-infested apartment. His mind constantly wanders into a dreamscape that resembles his analog video experiments. B

ut when Pinkney meets Cora (Sonja Kinski), the girl of his dreams, his life soon spirals out of control. On their very first date, they travel through a dark path that descends into surreal chaos where Pinkney’s greatest hopes and worst fears are realized. Breaking down the barriers between fantasy and reality, “She’s Allergic To Cats” dives deep into psychological insanity via experimental video art techniques and romantic comedy tropes. Watch an exclusive teaser and see the film’s poster below.
