Red Dog

Film Synopsis

One night in the outback mining town of Dampier, Western Australia, a dying dog lies in the backroom of the town’s only pub. Not just any dog, but the most loved and infamous dog of the entire Pilbara region – Red Dog. Slowly, as word spreads, the local community gathers at the pub. Part vigil, part wake, part celebration, they swap stories of Red Dog’s epic life, his travels, his rise to fame, and how ultimately he brought them together as a community in this hot and desolate place.
