Laika, a stray dog, was the first living being to be sent into space and thus to a certain death. Following her traces and filmed from a dog’s perspective, Elsa Kremser and Levin Peter's "Space Dogs" accompanies the adventures of her descendants: two street dogs living in today’s Moscow.

Visually and conceptually sophistocated, Space Dogs traces the story of Laika, the first dog in space. Remarkable archival footage recounts the story of his selection, and directors Elsa Kremser and Levin Peter powerfully document the lives of his descendants, offering insight not only into the past and space travel, but also life today on earth.
