THE FIRMEST FRIEND
Directed by Andrew Fixell
Category: Documentary Short

Synopsis: In August 2014, filmmaker Andrew Fixell ventured into New York City's Tompkins Square Park to interview four homeless youth about their transient lifestyles and their relationships with the pit bulls who travel with them. Andrew learned that these individuals and their four-legged friends shared a bond that ran deeper than just master and dog. THE FIRMEST FRIEND tells the story of human and canine outsiders finding their way into each other's lives and giving each other hope where previously there had been none.
