Beware Dogs

See video
English (subtitled), 45 min, 2009, India

Four musicians and their music floating through the corridors of a quaint old house in an old Delhi neighborhood is what 'Beware Dogs' attempts to capture. The house is where the band Indian Ocean come together with their many moods. As they work and play, the camera peeps into their world desiring to know the artists behind the familiar tunes. The artists are like characters in the film, glimpsed and known only through their music and the space they inhabit. In its narrative length, 'Beware Dogs' attempts to seek the four musicians and share their travails of creating music as they laugh, grimace and sway tying the pieces that will go on to become a new song.
