Two unlikely lovers- a man born into slavery and an emotionally-unhinged woman unable to nurture a pet- form the core of this beautiful allegorical nightmare. Of Bitches & Hounds carries the viewer through a dark and magical dreamscape populated by a black slave trader, an unattainable dog bone, an omniscient canine and an interstate trotting angel, to name just a few. Fevered imagery and even more fevered emotion converge to paint an awesome picture of the modern relationship-unbalanced, uninhibited and co-dependent. Shot with both mini-DV and HD technologies, the filmmakers combine the gritty with the vibrant to make Of Bitches & Hounds what it is-a lucid fantasy of human bondage with enough humor and heart to offset the pain and degradation. Who is the bitch and who is the hound? That is for you to decide. Written by
