Exclusive Clips: Twins Screaming Silently in Isabella Carbonell’s “Dogborn”

Among the seven-film competition line-up in the 2022 Venice Intl. Film Critics’ Week we find the debut feature from Swedish filmmaker Isabella Carbonell. After a quartet of short films including her 2015 debut short (Boys) was Cannes Critic’s week selection in 2015, and her debut feature Dogborn was featured as a Next Step project at the Cannes Critics’ Week and was selected for the Work in Progress section of Les Arcs in 2021. Dogborn will have its world premiere on September 6th. Here’s the synopsis and clips:

Homeless and invisible – the Twins are constantly struggling to survive. Sister is a ticking time bomb; her screams are loud. Brother, on the other hand, doesn’t speak, but rather screams inwards. Their dream of a real home leads to an unexpected job opportunity that sounds simple enough: Transport goods from point A to point B. But when the goods appear in the form of two young girls, the unspeakable happens. A rift suddenly occurs between Brother and Sister. Over the course of two intense days the twins are forced to make a life-altering decision: how far are they willing to go in their quest for a better future?
