THE DOG WALKER

Presented at:
Market Arcade Film and Art Center

FILM
Saturday, September 25 at 7 p.m. at MAFAC 639 Main St.
THE DOG WALKER (2001, 90 min.)
written and directed by Jacques Thelemaque
Tickets are available in advance for $10 (screening only), $30 (screening and party at Sphere). On the night of the event, tickets are $15 (screening only), $40 (screening and party).

The Los Angeles dogwalking scene provides the colorful backdrop to the story of Ellie Moore (played by Buffalo native Diane Gaidry), on the run from her latest abusive boyfriend, who finds herself broke and broken on the lonely streets of L.A. Rescue comes in the unlikely form of Betsy Wright (Pamela Gordon), a misanthropic dogwalker in need of temporary help with her business and struggling with her own dark past.

Screening co-sponsored by Crisis Services, the Market Arcade Film & Arts Center, Sphere, Hallwalls, and the SPCA in recognition of Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Post Party will take place from 9 –11 pm at Sphere, with the director and Diane Gaidry present.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
