"Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog"

The Webster University Film Series presents Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog (Sai Yoichi, 2004, Japan, 100 min) June 22 – 25, at 7:30 p.m. in the Winfred Moore Auditorium. The film is in Japanese with English subtitles.

Based on a true story, the film tells the tale of a yellow Labrador Retriever guide dog for the blind named Quill. We follow Quill from the litter to his selection as a guide dog shortly after his first birthday.

After training at a school for guide dogs, Quill is paired with a blind man named Watanabe who at first is reluctant to rely on him. But Quill’s great patience, gentleness and skill eventually win him over and they become inseparable friends.
