New Owner

The Last Great Hunt

Australia

Sometimes we don’t know what we are looking
for until we have found it.

Bernie is a boisterous puppy waiting to be chosen from the animal shelter. Mabel is a lonely widow, trying to fill the hole in her heart. The day they find each other is the beginning of a beautiful friendship, but Mabel is old and
Bernie is young – and suddenly alone. Combining puppetry, live action and animation, New Owner shows us a world of adventure through a dog’s eyes.

  • “... a fascinating, funny, and sometimes sad but sweet work that … lets us imagine what life must be like for our furry friends.”
