Lek and the Dogs
+ Q&A with director Andrew Kötting
Andrew Kötting’s latest, inspired by a true story, combines sci-fi, fairy tale and archive.
Dir Andrew Kötting
With Xavier Tchili
London Film Festival regular Andrew Kötting’s new film combines sci-fi, fairytale and archive material, with touches of Tarkovsky, and is based on the true story of a young boy who left his parents and ended up on the city streets being cared for by wild dogs. Kötting’s account of this ultimate ‘lost boy’ uses a range of visual styles derived from avant garde and genre cinema to create a visual meditation on what it means to be an outsider.

Andrew Kötting will be signing copies of the Earthworks Bookwork in the BFI Shop after this screening and Q&A.
