In the second movie the Bischofberger brothers had the idea to realise a science fiction. The movie was shot last summer on the small Italian island of Favignana near Sicily and is now in post-production. This involves the creation of science fiction visual effects by Sascha Rossier and the participation of sound designer Peter Bräker for the audio ambience.

However, this is expensive... :-) For this reason we ask you to participate and sustain the realisation of this project. In exchange you will receive a special mention of your choice in the ending credits and a hand-signed DVD copy.

Synopsis of the movie

In a not-too-distant future only a few homo sapiens are left. Struggling for survival they are forced to live from hunting the last remaining animals in the peripheral ruins of a more advanced human civilization. But they are unaware of being stalked themselves by a mysterious scanner. A science-fiction story about hunting and being hunted, about extinction and survival, about dogs – and men.

Background of the directors

The Bischofberger brothers spent a large part of their childhood in Southern Italy, where their forefathers used to live as illiterate farmers working in the fields and eating dog meat to survive. These peasants were in fact called «mangiacani» locally, which means «dog eaters» in Italian. It is this historical background of scarce resources that inspired the directors to make a science-fiction movie. The rural poverty of the mangiacani is transposed into an apocalyptic stone pits architecture in a story that is at the same time very new and very remote.

Dario and Mirko Bischofberger were born into an Italian family in Switzerland. They realized their first feature film «Old is the New» in 2012. Dog Men is the second movie. Dario runs a small wine company and Mirko works as a scientific advisor.
