The Rosendale Theatre Collective presents Heddy Honigmann’s documentary Buddy on Wednesday, June 12. Honigmann, who has had retrospectives at MoMA and the Centre Pompidou, turns her eye to the relationships between dogs and people. Depicted are six pooches that do amazing things: They open and close drawers, turn their mistress over in bed, remove paper from the computer printer, push a syringe into flesh, put on a woman’s socks and pull up her blanket. They soothe a veteran with PTSD and a severely autistic child. Rotten Tomatoes called Buddy “an ode to the fighting spirit of the main characters and a loving portrait of the deep bond between man and dog.” Buddy is shown in partnership with the Ulster County SPCA.
