The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be Quiet

Argentina’s Ana Katz will be premiering her sixth narrative feature in 2021, The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be Quiet (El perro que no calla), reuniting with actress Julieta Zylberberg (who worked with Lucrecia Martel on The Holy Girl and with Damian Szifron in Wild Tales). She’s joined in the cast by Daniel Katz, Valeria Lois, Mirella Pascual, and Carlos Portaluppi, produced by the director and Laura Huberman from a script by first-time scribe Gonzalo Delgado on a project that is being coined by the film’s producer as a “profound and political film”.

Katz premiered her 2007 title A Stray Girlfriend in Un Certain Regard at Cannes and in 2011 competed in San Sebastian with Los Marziano. She competed for the first time in Sundance with 2016’s My Friend from the Park, which won her a Best Screenwriting Award. In 2018, she won both the FIPRESCI Prize and the Special Prize of the Jury for Florianopolis Dream at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.

Gist: As the world faces a potential apocalypse, Sebastian, a man in his thirties, embrace love at every opportunity while working a series of temporary jobs. These encounters eventually begin to change him.

Release Date/Prediction: The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be Quiet will premiere in the World Cinema Dramatic competition at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival and shortly after will premiere at Rotterdam in the Big Screen Competition section.
