Humans have domesticated dogs for thousands of years, and in many parts of the world, dogs are referred to as a man’s best friend. But in several African and East Asian countries, dogs are viewed as a food source. Every year, millions of dogs fall prey to dog smugglers and are traded on a mostly unregulated market. The cruel treatment of these smuggled dogs provoked an Australian filmmaker to produce a short film that will be screen at the sidelines of the Cannes Film Festival next week.
