Reviews

Greyhounds

"The Little Grey Film is a gorgeous short film that finds a way to beautifully balance exposing the horrors of greyhound racing with the growing hope for the end of the industry. It will leave you wanting to adopt a sweet, “goofy” greyhound."

This excellent short film by Indy Davies gives a revealing insight into the plight and fate of many of the Greyhounds enmeshed in the Greyhound racing industry of Australia. The statistical facts of Greyhound racing with regard to the welfare of the hounds involved need to be widely known, and this film definitely helps in that regard. The numerous interviews in the film show the dedication and compassion of the Greyhound rehoming and adoption organisations and the very worthwhile job they are doing. I thoroughly recommend you take a look. It is well worth watching, especially if you are thinking of rehoming one of these wonderful gentle creatures.

"A huge thank you to Indy Davies for The Little grey Film. Greyhounds are such a quiet, gentle loving breed, that deserves kindness. I found it informative and inspiring, I now want to adopt a greyhound! RidersForDogs have started sending to the Coalition for the Protection of Greyhounds some financial support. Money raised with the help of dog loving motorcyclists 🥰."

What an extraordinary film. It's a greyhound love story. I love the way you've kept the greyhounds front and centre all the way through. And the contrast between these beautiful, goofy dogs and the cynical horror of the racing industry is so stark and compelling. Aren't all the people wonderful, every word so articulate and heartfelt. There's a great balance to the messaging: political, social, ethical, emotional. I just loved it, have to go and watch it again now. I was telling the others you sent to the video to that I remember the first day we heard from you. You said you were an independent filmmaker with a rescue grey and a deep love of greyhounds. That was a great day for us and an even better one for the dear greyhounds.

THANK YOU to you Indy (and crew) and the amazing cast of rescuers and advocates who contributed to the making of this thought provoking film to help strengthen the voice of our precious hounds🙏 Indy, thank you for bringing these warriors together and creating this powerful educational tool which I truly believe should be shown in schools….to plant seeds of compassion in the hearts of our young people.
