Join the Independent Women’s Forum on Wednesday, June 18th, for movie night screening of Dog Days.
Dog Days is directed and produced by Laura Waters Hinson and Kasey Kirby, a filmmaking duo based in Washington, DC. After losing his job in 2009, Coite Manuel sets off to build his dream business with the help of two unlikely women: Deane, his harp-playing aunt, and Siyone, an East African hotdog vendor and single mother of four. Staking his meager life savings on a vision to revive Washington, D.C.’s dwindling hotdog vending community, Coite faces bewildering challenges, from hostile city regulations to an entrenched local monopoly to the sudden popularity of food trucks. Even though success doesn’t come easily, the characters fight to maintain hope in the face of adversity.
The film was made in association with the Moving Picture Institute. See more about the film here.
