Synopsis
DOGS IN SPACE is set in what may be considered the initial decay of the punk/anarchistic subculture in Australia, 1979, and opens at a ticket stakeout for a David Bowie concert. It follows the lives of several people living in a communal style household, relatively secure in their closed, but tolerant, world of drugs, gigs, parties, television, music, destruction and (for some) sex. The relationship between Sam (Michael Hutchence) and Anna (Saksia Post) forms the main focus of the film but is only a part of the kaleidoscope of people ranging from sociopaths to hippies.
