Synopsis: El Hor observes one of the most ancient and highly honoured dog breeds – the Saluki. It takes the viewer on a strange trip from the past into the future, and from life to death, using stunning images of the Saluki to guide the viewer’s reflection on these profound concepts. Along the way, tributes are paid to pedigree, cosmology, history and dynasty.
